Ferny Grove State School is now an enrolment managed school, please refer to our school enrolment management plan​ for more details.
Prep parents considering enrolling their child at Ferny Grove are asked to check the catchment map on our website.  We enrol any children who live within this area upon proof of residency.
If you reside outside this area, applications for enrolment will be taken from 8 am on the first Monday of March in the year prior to starting Prep.  The application form can be downloaded here from our website and completed by typing into the document. Completed applications can be emailed to As applications are received they are numbered and stored accordingly. Our enrolment numbers are confirmed towards the middle of term 4 at which time some out of catchment students may be invited to enrol. Only applications received from 8am on the first Monday of March will be considered – anything received prior will not be included.
Details of our Parent Information Evenings are distributed to the local child care centres and kindergartens, advertised in the local newspaper, on our Facebook Page and on our school sign.
We offer an Enrolment Information Evening in May each year, which is a great introduction to our school and includes a school tour and an opportunity to meet our Principal and Deputy Principals.  Information packs, including enrolment forms will be available at this time.  During Term 2, you will also be able to book a time for an enrolment interview with the principal, deputy principal and/or Prep teachers, which is for both you and your child.
Later in the year, several of the Prep teachers and our admin team will be in attendance at the Get Set for Prep evening and will be able to give you information about the Prep program at Ferny Grove SS.  A Prep Orientation morning is held towards the end of the year. Uniforms are available for order on this morning. To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.


Enrolment procedures begin in the year prior to your child’s commencement in Prep. Children must turn five by the 30th of June in the year they commence Prep.   Check what year your child should begin Prep or Year 1 by using the online ready reckoner tool.

Once enrolled, children attend Prep for a full day, five days a week from 8:40 am– 2:50pm. Prep enrolments are now open.
