For students enrolling for 2022 - No changes
For students enrolling for 2023 - Stage 1 of the revised zone.
For students enrolling for 2024 - Stage 2 of the revised zone.

Details of the current scheme and the stages for the new scheme, including a printable map of the zones, can be found in the links section on the right of this page.

Out of zone enrolments welcome. A school zone does not restrict students living outside the zone from enrolling.
