The out-of-zone application deadline for 2023 enrolments is Wednesday, 7 September 2022.

If at any time there are more applicants than places available then a ballot will be held in accordance with the Education Act. The ballot date is Wednesday, 14 September.

Applications for enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • First Priority: This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary.
  • Second Priority: will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
  • Third Priority: will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
  • Fourth Priority: will be given to any applicants who are a child of a former student of the school.

  • Sixth Priority: will be given to all other applicants.

Applicants seeking second or third priority status will be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.

Families will be notified once the ballot is drawn and will have 14 days to confirm their place. If applicants deny their place or do not reply to the school to confirm their place within 14 days, applicants will be removed from the acceptance list and the place will be offered to the next applicant on the ballot.
