Out of zone enrolments

Each term the Board of Trustees will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following term for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone (if any). The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will state how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

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

The order of priority in which applicants who live outside a school’s home zone are to be offered places at the school is as follows:

  • first priority This priority category does not apply at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary. (This category does not apply to Wigram Primary School).


  • second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school:


  • third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school:


  • fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school:


  • fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school:


  • sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

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