Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Check your address on School Finder to see if it is within our local intake area. Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol

Apply online. If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident you are eligible to complete the online enrolment application. You will then need to finalise the application at the school.

If you are not eligible or prefer not to enrol online, use the application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB) form. Please complete the form in English. A translated application to enrol may help you do this.

Out-of-area enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

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

Temporary visas and international students

The Temporary Residents Program has information about eligibility and the forms to complete an application.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

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, proximity and access to the school from the residential address of the parent or guardian will be considered. Other criteria include:

  • Sibling of a child currently enrolled at Muirfield High School
  • Availability of a subject, or combination of subjects, that can be best met at Muirfield High School. (Subject selection material is available on the school’s website.)
  • Proximity and access to the school, including ability to meet the school’s starting time of 8.15am by public transport
  • Compassionate circumstances
  • Structure and organisation of the school

The school's Enrolment Policy (pdf 623KB) provides further information. 

Non-local applications will be considered by the school's Placement Panel which meets in Weeks 2 & 8 of each term. 

How to enrol

1. Complete the Enrolment Enquiry Form (pdf 113KB)  and submit directly to the school's front office with a copy of the student's most recent school report and proof of residential address of parent with whom the child resides as listed in the Enrolment Supporting Documentation (pdf 560KB). (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 and submit any other required documents.

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 1 April 2021 using the application form. Details on supporting documentation are found on the application form (pdf 284KB).
