Where every girl from everywhere experiences success

Enrolling at MGSC

Below is an overview of the enrolment process. Applications for year 7 placement are accepted in early term 2 for the following year.

Information for parents/carers on moving from primary school to secondary school can be found on the Department of Education and Training website Moving from primary school to secondary school: information for parents.
When applying to MGSC the steps may vary depending on where your child currently attends school.

Moving from a government primary school

Your transition will be managed by your current primary school. They will provide the Year 6 to Year 7 Placement Information Pack (government schools) which includes application forms which should be returned to your primary school.

Moving from a non-government (includes Catholic) primary school or home schooling

Many of our local Catholic schools will manage your child's transition including providing the relevant Year 6 to Year 7 Placement Information Pack (non-government schools) and request applications be returned to that primary school. If this is not the case or your daughter attends an independent school or is home schooling then the pack and forms can be downloaded from DET's Moving from primary to secondary school page and the application returned directly to MGSC. (Post, hand-delivery or mentone.girls.sc@education.vic.gov.au)

Placement Policy and school zones

Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.

This policy prioritises applications when enrolments exceed places available. MGSC has been able to place all applications in recent years.

Please note, there is not a separate 'out-of-zone application' form. Only the DET documents need to be completed and returned.

Follow the Application for Year 7 Placement form instructions

  • Use findmyschool.vic.gov.au to identify your neighbourhood zone.
  • Place MGSC as your first preference in section 4B on the application form.
