Enrolling Your Child

Students Inside the Local Intake Area
In the majority of instances enrolling your child is done through the primary school your child is currently attending within the district.  Enrolment information is distributed to primary schools in Term 1 of each year.  Parents are required to complete an application form and send it to Melville SHS for processing.

New students intending to enrol in 2015 should have the paperwork completed by 4 July. Ring reception to have an enrolment form sent in the mail on 9330 0300 or drop into reception to fill out the paperwork. You will also need:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Latest school report
  • Proof of address
  • Immunistation papers

Students Outside the Local Intake Area

Students that live outside the local intake area are welcome to fill out an enrolment application. Entry will be gained if there is a vacancy once local area students have enroled. Gifted and Talented, Approved Specialist Program students and Intensive English students do not have to live in the area.

An interactive Map of the area is HERE

Approved Specialist Programs

Students can attend Meville Senior High School from outside the local intake area if they are accepted into Gifted and Talented or Specialist Programs. See Specialist Program options on the home page and download a copy of the school prospectus or alternatively contact the school for further assistance. Parents wishing to enrol students after the school term/year has commenced need to fill out an application for enrollment as above and then make an appointment with the school to discuss their circumstances.

If your child is moving to high school in Year 7 more information is available HERE.
