​​​​​​Acceptance and notification processes

In-catchment enrolments​

Applications for students from Prep - Year 6 moving into our catchment area will be accepted all year round. 

Enrolments for in-catchment 2024 Preps will be accepted at any time, with enrolment forms available from our office during office hours.

Families will then be placed on our mailing list and notified of future Prep transition dates. ​

Out-of-catchment enrolments 

Below is the process for out-of-catchment enrolment requests for all state schools that have an Enrolment Management Plan, including Sherwood. The process below generally applies for all year levels from Prep to Year 6, with our Prep out-of-catchment waiting list opening on the first day of Term 2 each calendar year for the next year's Prep cohort.

Please note, Sherwood State School has now exceeded its enrolment capacity numbers (as set by the regional team in accordance with our facilities capacity) and therefore we will be unable to accept any out-of-catchment requests for 2024.  This will mean the Prep out-of-catchment waiting list will not be open to any child who does not reside within out-of-catchment for at least 2024.

You can still apply for enrolment at a state school outside of your catchment area, but enrolment is not guaranteed and you will be placed on a waiting list.

Applications are processed and assessed in the order they are received.

A state school's ability to accept students who live outside its catchment area depends on whether the school:

  • has capacity once all in-catchment enrolments are met
  • needs to allow for students relocating into their catchment area during the year
  • can ensure an even spread of students across all year levels while maintaining class size targets
  • can ensure their out-of-catchment enrolments do not reduce their capacity to meet in-catchment enrolments.
