Enrolling at Our School

We welcome new enrolments at William Ross State High School and encourage you to read through the enrolment process.
 
Enrolment Management Plan 
William Ross State High School has an enrolment management plan. Students are eligible to enrol if: 

  • they live within the catchment area
  • they have a sibling enrolled at the school
  • they are subject to child protection orders that grant guardianship or custody to the Chief Executive Officer of the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services (Child Safety Services)
  • their parent/s or legal guardian is employed by the school
  • students who live outside the catchment area and are verified with a disability can enrol in the school to attend a specialised disability program if it is the closest program to their home and meets their individualised needs
  • if there is space in the relevant year level

 

Enrolment Process
The first step in enrolling is to fill out an enrolment form and provide the mandatory documentation. The enrolment form can be downloaded from this webpage, or collected from the Administration Office. 

  • Enrolment Form – please include birth certificate, current report cards and proof of residential address (these are all mandatory)
  • Student Resource Scheme Participation Agreement
  • Media Release Agreement
 
Once the enrolment paperwork is filled out the next step is for parents or guardians to contact the school office on (07) 47267 666 during office hours (8.00am – 3.30pm) to arrange a suitable time for an enrolment interview with a member of the school administration team.
 
Enrolment Interview 
At the enrolment interview, parents and students have the opportunity to discuss progress from their previous school, specific learning needs, extra-curricular involvement along with any individual assistance required for the student to reach their potential. The administration team member will outline conditions of enrolment and requirements for students including: 

  • subject selection
  • dress code
  • code of conduct for students
  • application to study

A signed enrolment form at the conclusion of the interview indicates student and parents have agreed with the conditions of enrolment, and an enrolment date is agreed upon.
