Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

At Muirfield, we also consider enrolments of students from outside our drawing area.

Non-local enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available. Non-local enrolment applications will be considered with reference to each applicant’s residential address and selection criteria. Non-local enrolments will be required to comply with the school’s starting times, which is 8.15am. As such, distance from the school of the residential address will be considered. Other criteria include:

  • commitment to learning
  • study of a course offering that can best be met at Muirfield
  • special aptitudes of the applicant
  • compassionate circumstances
  • sibling of a child currently enrolled at Muirfield. Please note that having a sibling currently enrolled does not automatically guarantee enrolment.

The school's Enrolment Policy (pdf 618KB) provides further information. 

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

How to enrol

1. Complete the Enrolment Enquiry Form (pdf 79KB)  and submit directly to the school's front office with the required documents as listed on the Enrolment Enquiry Documents (pdf 42KB). (This for both local and non-local enquiry.)

2. The school will contact parents to arrange an interview with the Deputy Principal. During the enrolment interview, let the Deputy Principal know of any special circumstances, allergies, health or medical conditions affecting your child.

3. If a placement is able to be offered, the school will provide parents with the application form. Parents are to complete this form prior to commencement.

Year 6 to 7 enrolment

Students moving from Year 6 to Year 7, that is commencing secondary school in the following year, do not follow the above process. All applications for Year 6 students at government primary schools are submitted via the student's primary school, using the Expression of Interest form provided by the primary school. Year 6 students at non-government schools will need to contact Muirfield directly. 

We have a High Achievers Class in Year 7. The High Achievers class caters for students who are talented in literacy and numeracy, who process information and new concepts quickly or who are academic high achievers.

Applications for the High Achievers Class should be submitted to Muirfield High School's front office by 13 April 2019 using the application form. Details on supporting documentation are found on the application form (pdf 540KB).
