Enrolment Information

Cheltenham Secondary College is an open and inclusive school that welcomes contact from the community with regards to potential enrolments. Whilst we have a zone of our own, we also have a shared zone with Sandringham Secondary College and Parkdale Secondary College. It’s important to note though that nearly 60% of our students come from outside of our exclusive zone, that is from the shared zone and beyond.

We have a number of feeder primary schools that we work with to ensure students make an effective transition to our College, they are:

  • Cheltenham East Primary School
  • Cheltenham Primary School
  • Southmoor Primary School
  • Kingston Heath Primary School
  • Dingley Primary School
  • Le Page Primary School
  • Kingswood Primary School
We are currently accepting out of zone enrolments.

Cheltenham Secondary has traditionally been subject to a geographical zone whereby some parents may have assumed their child did not meet eligibility to attend. For families seeking to do this it is necessary for the College to undertake enrolment procedures based upon Department of Education and Training policy and guidelines.

If you wish to have a tour of the college please call reception on +613 9555 5955. Tours are normally held at around 9:30am and take approximately an hour.

Please note: parents who live within the Cheltenham Secondary College zone do not need to complete this form, nor do parents who already have a child attending the college.

Enhancement and Enrichment Program

Cheltenham Secondary College caters for high achieving students through our successful Enrichment and Enhancement Program. Students are accelerated in Maths and offered challenges and enrichment appropriate for their abilities across their other subjects. In English and Science, studies are enriched in both the breadth and depth of their studies. They will encounter problems and challenges designed to extend their thinking, develop their resilience and initiative, and involve them in research projects requiring skills and knowledge beyond the normal Year 7 Curriculum. The program is designed to encourage students to strive for excellence and extend their learning beyond the normal Year 7 program.
