Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au

Findmyschool.vic.gov.au hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2022 onwards. Students residing in our zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations. We encourage you to visit the website to answer any queries you may have about enrolling at Western Port Secondary College (WPSC).

Right of Entry

A child residing permanently in the neighbourhood area has the right to attend WPSC unless already enrolled in a secondary school. WPSC has a designated neighbourhood zone as defined by the Department of Education & Training. The student must be living with the parent or carer at the permanent address or spend a substantial part of their time at that address. The permanent residential address is defined as one where:

  • The home is owned by the parent or carer
  • The home is under purchase
  • The home is leased from a registered real estate agent for a minimum of 12 months from the time a child is to commence. Evidence of the above will be required to authenticate residence. Other evidence may also be requested e.g. rates notice, utility bill, medicare card and relevant VISA documents (showing parent/legal carer and child’s name).

There is no automatic sibling claim, but ‘wherever practical’ a student should be enrolled at the same school as that attended by an older brother or sister who resides permanently at the same address.
