ENROLMENT AT WESTGROVE

Under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006, schooling is compulsory for students aged between 6 and 17 years unless an exemption from attendance has been granted. For children commencing Prep, they must be 5 years of age by April 30th of the year they are in Prep.

School Zone

As per DET guidelines, Westgrove will accept enrolments for students who reside in our school zone. Our school zone is available on  findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.

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.
