Information on how to find, enrol, and start a child in your care at a school in Victoria is available on the Victorian government website.

Students are referred for enrolment at our school by clinicians at Austin Health and a student’s eligibility for enrolment will be in line with our Enrolment policy and all enrolment forms and information will be provided by the referring clinician.

School zones

Information about school zones is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au. This website hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones.

Students are guaranteed a place at their designated neighbourhood school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. Enrolment at schools like ours, as well as any select entry, specialist and specific purpose schools, is determined based on the school’s local Enrolment policy and/or Entry criteria.

The Department provides guidance for designated neighbourhood schools through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
