Enrolling at our school

Enrolment process

Step 1 - Enrolment Enquiry

Contact us to enquire about enrolling at our school and to arrange an Enrolment Pack to be collected from the school office or posted to you.  All enrolment enquiries can be emailed to enrolments@laidleyshs.eq.edu.au or contact the Enrolment Officer on (07) 5466 8922 to discuss our Enrolment Management Plan and how this impacts on your application for enrolment.

Step 2 - Read Materials Provided

Find out more about our school by reading the materials provided including:

Step 3 - Arranging an Interview

Students who meet the enrolment management eligibility criteria are able to book an enrolment interview with a member of our school administration when making the enrolment enquiry.
 
Students who live outside the school catchment must complete and submit an enrolment application and wait for the Principal to determine whether the school is able to accept the enrolment.  Decisions regarding out of catchment enrolments are made by the Principal in accordance with the School Enrolment Management Plan.  When your enrolment is accepted an interview time will be arranged with you.

Step 4 -The Interview

Please make sure you bring the following documents with you and your student to the interview. 

For in catchment enrolments you will also need to provide evidence of residential address including:

  • one Primary source (a current lease agreement, drivers licence or unconditional sale agreement) AND
  • one Secondary source (a utility bill e.g. electricity, gas etc. or rates notice showing the same address and parent/legal guardian name) 
 
If the Principal is not satisfied that the documentation provided by an applicant demonstrates adequately that the address stated is the student’s principal place of residence, then the Principal may request further sources of proof of residence, such as an additional utility bill (e.g. water) showing the same address.

The Principal may also request a properly sworn Statutory Declaration from the enrolling parent or legal guardian attesting that the student’s principal place of residence is the place nominated in the enrolment application.

Senior students (Years 11 and 12) will also need to supply a Student Education and Training (SET) Plan. If you do not have one it can be completed at the interview.

Step 4 - Commencing School

It is anticipated that students will commence school as soon as possible following the enrolment interview with all required school materials and in full school uniform.
 
Please discuss any issues regarding this requirement during the enrolment interview.
