Enrolment at Princes Hill Secondary College
Please note: The Placement Policy, in particular the priority order of placement, has changed since the beginning of the 2023 school year. All enrolment decisions made from the start of Term 2, 2023 will be made in accordance with the Department Placement Policy. Consequently, curriculum grounds applications will no longer be accepted.
Princes Hill Secondary College continues to experience significant enrolment pressures, and like any other Victorian secondary government school, follows a priority order of placement where there are insufficient places for all students who are seeking entry.
Students living within the school zone are guaranteed entry to their local school. Parents/carers can locate their local government secondary college by visiting www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au, which is the single source of truth for government schools.
The priority order of placement is:
- students with a sibling at the same permanent address who is attending the school at the same time
- all other students in order of closeness of their home to the school.
Students from outside the school zone will no longer be prioritised for enrolment based on curriculum grounds. Enrolment on compassionate grounds remains in the Placement Policy as an overarching consideration.

The high retention rate at PHSC restricts our intake. Very few places become available after the initial intake of students from primary school.
Sibling and closeness grounds will only be considered after local permanent residency claims are evaluated.
Applications for transfer based on residential grounds from neighbouring schools may not be granted.
