Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

Planning to Enrol at BHPS

If you are planning to enrol your child at BHPS an Application to Enrol form needs to be completed with documentary evidence of a birth certificate, proof of residency and immunisation certificate.

Before enrolment can be accepted by the office all required documentation must be ready.

Please use our enrolment checklists to ensure your documentation is ready for lodgement:

Kindergarten Enrolment Checklist (PDF 205KB)

Years 1 to 6 Enrolment Checklist (PDF 33.5KB).

When enrolment has been accepted a confirmation letter will be sent.

A completed copy of the Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics Participation Letter (PDF 137 KB) will also need to be submitted with each new enrolment.

When lodging an enrolment you may want to consider becoming a volunteer at the school. To volunteer within the school you will need to complete a 'Working With Children Check'. This declaration must be completed by volunteers and non-child related contractors seeking engagement with the Department of Education  Appendix 5 – Declaration for volunteers and non child related contractors (PDF 167KB). The volunteering procedures for BHPS and the 100 point check process is outlined here  Volunteering at Beacon Hill Public School (PDF 147KB).

How to enrol 

Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.

For more information, visit primary school enrolment.

Download an application to enrol (PDF 5.9MB).

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.

Non-local enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

All out of area enrolments will need to complete the Out of Area Application Form (953KB)  and a Statutory Declaration Form (13 KB) to be submitted to the school together for review.

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

Temporary visas and international students

For information about eligibility and forms to complete, visit the Temporary Residents Program.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.
