Enrolling at our school
Ferny Grove State School is an enrolment managed school. Please refer to our Enrolment management plan (PDF, 244KB) for more details.
Parents considering enrolling their child at Ferny Grove State School are asked
to check this catchment map. We enrol students who live
within the designated catchment area upon proof of residency.
For in catchment enrolments, the first step to enrolling is to complete an Expression of interest form, which allows us to verify that you do reside within catchment. This can be submitted anytime but we recommend this is done as soon as possible, and before Enrolment interviews open in term 3.
Information and interview sessions:
- Parent information evenings give an introduction to the school
- Enrolment information evenings include a school tour and the chance to meet the Principal and Deputy Principals. Information packs will be provided at these sessions which include enrolments forms.
- You will then be able to book an enrolment interview for term 3 which is for both you and your child.
Out of catchment
If you are out of catchment, applications for enrolment will be taken from 8am on the first Monday of March in the year prior to starting school. You will need to complete an Expression of interest form which can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our enrolment numbers are confirmed in term 3 or 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. If invited to enrol, details of information and interview sessions will be provided.
Prep enrolments for 2024 are currently open.
