Students are eligible to attend Gisborne Secondary College if the College is the closest government school to your residential address, (if measured by the shortest practicable route). You can see a map of the school zone here (or refer to the diagram as per the Find My School Website). Families are required to provide two forms of documentation to prove their residential address, for example: rate’s notice, utility notice, driver’s licence.
All new enrolments to Gisborne Secondary College (excluding the year 6 into year 7 transition process) are overseen by the Assistant Principal’s. A parent interview is required at a mutually arranged appointment time. Student reports and assessment grades are required at the interview.
School requirements and information including uniform, books, lockers, code of conduct, parent and student supports, and subjects of study are discussed with parents and students before enrolment forms are signed. Interviews do not take place without a parent/guardian in attendance. To make an enrolment enquiry please fill out the Enrolment Enquiry Form.
Transition from Year 6 to 7
At Gisborne Secondary College our transition program spans Years 6 and 7. We follow the policy set by the Department of Education in handling the application process from primary to secondary school and support families and schools along the way to ensure the process is smooth and the experience positive for all.
More information for families about transitioning from Year 6 to 7, including the relevant Information Pack, depending on whether the student is moving from a government or non-government school, can be found at the Department of Education website.
