Enrolment Information for Year 7-12

Local intake school

John Forrest Secondary College is a local-intake school. The State Government determines the local-intake area.

Any child whose usual place of residence is within the intake area for the school will be offered a place.

Applications from outside the local-intake area will be considered only if there is capacity or a student has been selected into one of the College's Department of Education approved specialist programs. Priority is given to applications from outside of the local intake area when a sibling is already enrolled at the College.

For more information on the local-intake boundaries please visit Schools Online.

If you would like to take a tour of our College, please contact us to arrange an appointment with one of our Deputy Principals on (08) 9473 4000.
