Year 7 Students: 
At the start of Term 2, parents of students in Grade 6 will receive the relevant documentation regarding transition to Year 7 from their primary school. The Year 7 Placement Forms are issued by the Department of Education and Training and must be returned to the students’ primary school by the specified date.

It is the primary school Transition Coordinator's role to assist parents with the application process for enrolment at a government secondary school. The primary school will inform parents of the application outcome on Wednesday 7th August 2019.

Please note that an offer of a place at Box Hill High School for Year 7 is subject to providing the required documentation regarding permanent residential address as outlined below.  Residential address is the address at which the student permanently resides with parents or legal guardians.

Year 8-12 Students:

Students applying for enrolment in Years 8-12 should complete an Enrolment Enquiry Form and return it to the Enrolment Officer, along with the documentation required to demonstrate permanent place of residential address as well as a photocopy of the student's most recent school report. 

Permanent Residential Address

Each enrolment application must demonstrate that the student lives within the designated neighbourhood boundary by providing an original copy of each of the following types of documentation:

  1. A current rate notice or a valid lease agreement, with a minimum 12 month lease, from a registered real estate agent in the full name/s of the parent/s or legal guardian/s. A copy of the bond receipt should also be attached.

  2. Recent utility accounts in the full name/s of the parent/s or legal guardian/s citing the permanent residential address. Presentation of two utility bills (electricity, gas and water).*

  4. Drivers’ licence in the full name/s of the parent/s or legal guardian/s citing the permanent residential address.*

Permanent Residency in Designated Neighbourhood Boundary
It is an expectation that a family will remain permanent residents within the designated neighbourhood boundary for the duration of their child’s education at Box Hill High School.

The requirement of permanent residency within the boundary will be monitored and enforced. As such, where a family moves out of the designated neighbourhood boundary, the school may request that at the end of the school year, the parent/guardian enrol their child in the neighbourhood school closest to their new residential address or any other school where places are available.

For further details please contact Ms Dianne Trengove, Enrolment Officer.
