Enrolment for Year 7

Enrolment for Year 7 is completed through the student’s primary school when they are in Year 6. It cannot be completed earlier. During the first half of Year 6, parents will be asked to nominate the secondary school your child wishes attend the following year (Year 7).

Residential boundaries can affect whether your child can attend Canterbury Girls’ Secondary College as the College has a designated zone approved by the Department of Education and Training (DET). This means that priority for enrolment must be given to students who permanently live in the College zone. Once these students are enrolled, students from outside the zone can be offered positions.

Please note, permanent residency in the zone includes: purchase of property in the zone or a long-term lease (at least 12 months) and occupation of the property in the zone.

Enrolment offers are made according to the guidelines issued by DET. First priority is given to students who permanently live within the College zone. Further offers for enrolment to students living outside the zone (depending on vacancies) are decided in the following priority order:

  • Students for whom the school is the designated neighborhood government school

  • Students with a sibling at the same permanent residence who are attending the school at the same time

  • All of the students in order of closeness of their permanent residence to school

It is strongly recommended that parents who are interested in enrolling their child into Year 7 at Canterbury Girls’ Secondary College attend a tour and the information evening.

All forms relating to enrolment into Year 7 will be made available to parents through the relevant primary school. Your child’s Year 6 coordinator or Transition Coordinator can help you with any questions you might have about the process and they will also help you to get the appropriate paperwork for enrolling your child into secondary school.

School Tours & Open Days

Canterbury Girls’ Secondary College provides opportunities for prospective parents and students to tour the school, speak with students, ask questions and discuss the enrolment process with one of the Assistant Principals. As part of the student leadership program, Year 8 students are trained as tour guides and conduct tours for prospective students. Year 9 students are trained as College Ambassadors and conduct tours for prospective parents and other visitors.

Individual tours are not conducted throughout the year as they interrupt successful learning for our current students.

  • For the upcoming 2022 CGSC School Tours, please be advised that visitors over the age of 16 must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Please ensure you bring an electronic copy of your ticket and check in through the QR code at the reception. There is limited parking, so please take this into account as tours will start on time.
