Enrolling at Brentwood

The placement of students at Brentwood Secondary College is consistent with Department of Education and Early Childhood Development policy, the principles of which are to ensure students have access to neighbourhood schools and the freedom to choose other schools subject to the facility limitations of that school.

In most instances the designated neighbourhood school is defined as the school that is nearest to a student’s permanent residential address (straight line distance).

A child resident in the neighbourhood area has a right to attend the school if that is the wish of the parents/guardians. If the parents/guardians do not wish the child to attend either the neighbourhood school or the same school being attended by a brother or sister who resides at the same address, they have the right to choose any other school in which space is available.

Where there are insufficient places at a school for all students who seek entry students should be enrolled in the following priority criteria unless determined otherwise by the Regional Director.

  1. Students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school
  2. Students with a sibling at the same permanent address and who are attending the school at the same time
  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

If you wish to enrol your child at Brentwood (seperate from Year 6 to Year 7 transition) please contact the school on 8545 0300 to organise an appointment time with one of our enrolling officers.
