Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Check your address on School Finder to see if it is within our local intake area. Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol

If you live in our intake area and would like to apply to enrol at our school, start by submitting an online enrolment application. Online enrolment is currently only available for Australian or New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.

If you are not able to apply online or you prefer not to, download the paper application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB) form. Please complete the form in English. A translated application to enrol may help you do this.

Online enrolment can also be used for out-of-area enrolment. Please note that out-of-area enrolment procedures are subject to the department’s enrolment policy.

Enrolment applications are finalised at the school.

Criteria for Selection of Non-Local Enrolments

Parents may apply for non-local enrolment at Glendenning PS, based on the following criteria. The criteria are presented in categories, with the first three criteria being of greatest significance. Please note that a selection panel consisting of the Deputy Principal, a teaching staff member and a school community member will assess all applications and create a list of applicants who may be offered places. Non-local enrolment placement will only be offered if there are places available once all local applicants have been enrolled (and the ‘buffer’ for further/anticipated local enrolments maintained) and a vacancy exists.

The Process Timeline

  • Parents may apply for non-local enrolment of students at any time throughout the year.
  • The panel for considering non-local enrolments will meet fortnightly during Terms 3 and 4 of each year and as necessary during Terms 1 and 2.
  • Parents will receive notification of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt of it at school.
  • In the event of an application for non-local enrolment being declined the parents may appeal within 10 school days. Appeals should outline why the applicants believe the stated criteria were not applied equitably. Appeals should be addressed to the Principal. The Principal will advise of the outcome, in writing, within 10 school days. If the matter is not resolved at the school level, the final level of appeal is to the Director, Educational Leadership.
