Enrolling at our school


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​All students who reside within the local catchment area and are eligible for enrolment in the education program offered by the school have a right to enrol at the school. The Principal will hold places for students who relocate to within the catchment boundary throughout the school year.

Enrolment of students from outside the local catchment area will be managed to ensure that the total current and forecast enrolments do not exceed the school's current built capacity and where applicable will ensure there is an even spread of students across year levels or class groupings.​

The school's Enrolment Management Plan (EMP)​ does not replace other departmental policy; for example, Safe, Supportive and Disciplined School Environment, nor does it override subsequent determinations regarding built school capacity.

Primary school consists of Prep to Year 6. Children must be six years by 30 June in the year they enrol in Year 1.

Applications for admission into Years Prep – 6 will be accepted each year from the beginning of Term 1 for enrolment to commence from the beginning of Term 1 the following year.

Applications will be recorded in order of receipt and will remain current only for the year of submission.

Camp Hill State Infants and Primary School is governed by the EMP. All students who reside within the local catchment area (must provide the require proof of residency documents) or currently have a sibling at school; and are eligible for enrolment in the educational program offered by the school are automatically entitled to an enrolment in Prep and other Year levels.

To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the online calculator.

To determine if you reside within the catchment please check the Department of Education Catchment Area Map.
