Enrolment 

ZONES

The information below from the Department of Education and Training provides an overview of zoning in Bass Coast:

  • Both the San Remo Campus and the Dudley Campus of the school have their own school zone.
  • Students residing in each campus zone are guaranteed a place at their respective campus. This is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. To find out which school zone campus you reside in, visit the Find my school website.
  • Students are able to apply for a place at a campus or school that is not their designated neighbourhood school. In circumstances when a campus or school may not be able to accept all applications due to existing or future capacity concerns, schools manage enrolment applications in accordance with the ‘priority order of placement’.
  • The Department provides guidance through the placement policy to ensure that students have access to the school in their zone and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations. The Placement Policy applies equally to both campuses.
  • In exceptional circumstances, a student may be enrolled in a school based on compassionate grounds. Schools are permitted to assess and make a determination for exceptional circumstances applications on a case-by-case basis.
  • Prospective students residing in the San Remo Campus zone are guaranteed automatic entry at the San Remo Campus (in the year levels offered).
  • Students who reside in the San Remo Campus zone who already attend the Dudley Campus, have the option to transfer to the new San Remo Campus.
  • In future years, students who reside in the San Remo Campus zone may also be accepted into the Dudley Campus if there is sufficient capacity for the campus to accommodate out-of-zone students. These students will be considered on a case-by-case basis and prioritised in line with the placement policy
  • Prospective students residing in the Dudley Campus zone are guaranteed a place at the campus (in the year levels offered).
  • Siblings of students already enrolled at the Dudley Campus who apply for enrolment at the Dudley Campus will also be accepted.
  • Students who reside in the Dudley Campus zone may also be accepted into the San Remo Campus for next year, and future years if there is sufficient capacity for the campus to accommodate out-of-zone students. These students will be considered on a case-by-case basis and prioritised in line with Department’s placement policy
  • Students are able to apply for a place at a campus or school that is not their designated neighbourhood school. In circumstances when a campus or school may not be able to accept all applications due to existing or future capacity concerns, schools manage enrolment applications in accordance with the ‘priority order of placement’. This means that students who do not reside in their campus zone may be enrolled where there is sufficient capacity and will be prioritised in line with the Department’s placement policy
  • In exceptional circumstances, a student may be enrolled in a school based on compassionate grounds. Schools are permitted to assess and make a determination for exceptional circumstances applications on a case-by-case basis.
