How to Enrol

 The Department of Education has recently introduced a new more streamlined model for Prep applications, led by a digital enrolments system called Students Insights.

 

Step 1

Access the Student Insights enrolments system online. 

Click here to visit the Student Insights enrolment portal and register before completing your child’s application. The closing date for all prep applications is 26 July 2024. 

 

Step 2

Applicants will be requested to provide further documentation

As part of your application, Student Insights will request that you provide copies of the following documentation:

  • Birth Certificate (English translated)
  • Immunisation Form from the Australian Immunisation Register
  • Proof of Residence (Tenancy Agreement, Contract of Sale, Builders Contract or Council Rates Notice)
  • Medical Management Plans (Asthma and Anaphylaxis)
  • Documentation for any Wellbeing alerts (Intervention Orders and additional learning support needs)
  • Visa information*

*All copies of student visas must be provided to the School as part of the enrolment process. The student’s eligibility for enrolment is based on the visa of the student and then in the second instance the family or parent. Depending on the status and visa number, students may need to apply through the Victorian Schools International Division https://www.study.vic.gov.au/en/Pages/default.aspx

 

Step 4

Applications are reviewed and outcomes are updated on Student Insights.  

The school will review all applications and will either offer a place of enrolment or decline. Schools will update the status of your application online via Student Insights.

Declined applications can request an appeal. This must be completed by Friday 23 August.

 

Step 5

Accepted applicants complete a full application form

Parents/Carers of accepted applicants will be prompted to complete a full application form via the portal. This must be completed by Friday 23 August.
