Transitional Enrolment

If your child is currently in year 6 and wishes to attend Modbury High School from year 7, please view the information below.

Additional information about the transitional enrolment process for students in year 6 can be obtained from your child's government primary school.

Transition Process

The enrolment process each year begins in week one of term 2. Parents and caregivers with students in years 6 will receive communication with their child’s URL to access the online registration of interest form.

Families will be notified of their student’s allocated high school in mid-August. Enrolment acceptance forms will be distributed via email (or paper forms via the primary schools) on Friday 13 August. Private school students who have been accepted will have packs sent to their home addresses in the same week.

Acceptance of enrolment forms must be submitted online or returned to Modbury High School by Friday 27 August.
