Enrolling at our school

Pimlico State High School is subject to an Enrolment Management Plan.  Priority for enrolment is given to children who permanently reside within the defined catchment area for the school.  However enrolment is not limited to residents of the catchment area and other children will be accepted for enrolment for the available places taking into account the following priorities:
 
·    Children who permanently reside within the catchment
·    Siblings of students already enrolled at the school and who will continue to attend after their sibling starts at school (not applicable for students accepted for Programs of Excellence)
·    Children whose parent or legal guardian is employed by the school
·    Students accepted for the school’s Programs of Excellence.
 
Other applicants will be placed on a waiting list and accepted for further available places in chronological order of receipt of completed enrolment application.
 

Catchment area

 
The boundary for the catchment area is based on equal distances between neighbouring high schools and is defined by the catchment area map for Pimlico SHS.  A copy of the map can be viewed from the link below.  Please note that this map shows only the approximate position of the catchment area boundary.  For all streets at or near the boundary, confirmation of the catchment status of individual properties must be obtained from the school office.
