Since its establishment, Mount Ridley P – 12 College (MRC) has experienced extraordinary demand for student places, receiving more student enrolment applications than it has the capacity to enrol.  Consequently, the Department of Education (DE) has implemented a student enrolment management plan to support the College in continuing to meet demand.

Where there are insufficient places at a school for all students who seek entry, DE has established set criteria under its state-wide Placement Policy.  As such, MRC utilises the following principles in order of precedence when enrolling students:

  1. Students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school.
  2. Students with a sibling at the same permanent residence who are attending the College at the same time. 
  3. Where the Regional Director has restricted the enrolment, students who reside nearest the school.
  4. Students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds.
  5. All other students in order of closeness of their home to the College.

Designated 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.

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.
