Year 7 Transition 2024

As your child is now in the final year of primary school, an important decision must be made about which secondary school your child will attend next year. 

Government School

If your child is going to attend a government secondary school in 2023 you need to return the Application for Year 7 Placement 2024 form to school by Friday 12th May.

If students are not successful in their first three preferences, they will be placed in their designated neighbourhood school.
