APPLICATIONS FOR OUT OF ZONE ENROLMENTS WILL BE PROCESSED IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER OF PRIORITY

 The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989.  If there are more applicants in the priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary for Education under Section 11G (1) of the Education Act 1989.  

  1. First priority is given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school and approved by the Secretary for Education.

(This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary.)

  1. Second priority is given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student at the school.
  2. Third priority is given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school.
  3. Fourth priority is given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
  4. Fifth priority is given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school, or a child of a member of the board of the school.
  5. Sixth priority is given to all other applicants.
