3. Where the regional director has restricted the enrolment, students who reside nearest the school.

4. Students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds.

5. All other students in order of closeness of their home to the school.

6. In exceptional circumstances, compassionate grounds.

Parents or guardians are invited to contact the General Office to make an appointment with Assistant Principal Mr Nick Hamer-Smith to arrange an interview.  Alternately you can complete the Enrolment Inquiry Form and email it to the General Office.  Mr Hamer-Smith will then contact you.
