​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Enrolment Policy

Any student, whose principal place of residence is within the school's catchment area, is (subject to the Act) entitled to enrol at the school. The school's Principal will reserve places for students who move into the catchment area ​throughout the school year.

Parents or legal guardians who seek to enrol their child at the school will need to fully demonstrate that the student's principal place of residence is genuinely within the catchment area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated must be provided.

The school reserves the right to confirm a student's entitlement to enrol under this Enrolment Management Plan immediately prior to the student's commencement at the school. Where a student about to commence at the school no longer resides within the catchment, the Principal reserves the right to review the eligibility of the student to commence at the school. Any failure to notify the school of a change in address of the student's principal place of residence will be considered in determining eligibility.

Factors that will be considered in determining whether a student's residence is their principal place of residence and is within the school's catchment include but are not limited to the following:

  • where the student sleeps
  • where the student eats meals
  • whether the student also resides in other premises and if so, the reasons for doing so and the extent of time spent there
  • the place of residence of the student's immediate family, especially a parent, carer, step-parent or sibling
  • whether there are other occupants of the residence, and their rights to, and control over, the property
  • the connection of utilities such as telephone, internet, subscription services (for example Foxtel), gas and electricity under the name of the student or their parent
  • whether the amount of electricity and/or gas used is consistent with the student and/or the student's immediate family occupying the residence as a home
  • the length of time of residence.

​The issue of whether a residence is a student's principal place of residence will be determined at the Executive Principal's discretion. The relevance and weight of each factor will depend on the individual circumstances of each case.

Examples of proof of residency documents under the relevant category that are required to be provided with the enrolment application to confirm the student's principal place of residence include but are not limited to the following:

Owned property

  • unconditional sale agreement demonstrating fair market value, settlement notice or title deed
  • evidence that the property is the legitimate family residence (e.g. type, size and nature of the accommodation)
  • a current rates notice/s
  • a current bills and evidence of payment (e.g. electricity, gas, internet, telephone) that demonstrate reasonable levels of usage.

Leased property

  • a ​current​ commercially drawn, arms-length, residential lease agreement in the name of the legal parents or guardians
  • a current bills and evidence of payment (e.g. electricity, gas, internet, telephone) that demonstrate reasonable levels of usage.
  • Driver's license
  • electoral roll

The Principal may request to sight original documentation and require copies of documents to be sworn or affirmed in front of the school's nominated legal officer, Commissioner for Declarations or Justice of the Peace (Qualified).

If the Principal is not satisfied that the documentation provided by an applicant demonstrates adequately that the address stated is the student's principal place of residence, then the Principal may decide that the student is not entitled to be enrolled at Aviation High School.

Out-of-Catchment application

​Selective entry process

The selective entry process will be determined and managed by the Principal.

All applicants must complete the application package available on the school website and applications may be made under more than one category.

The Principal reserves the right to review ongoing participation in a selective entry program if a student elects not to participate in the program for which they were selected.

Any fees paid are non-refundable.

The Principal is responsible for all decisions on selective entry enrolment and his decision on selection will be final. There is no internal review of the Principal's decision.

Application Fee

An application fee of $100 will be charged for students applying from Out-of-Catchment. This is for the compulsory​ AGAT Test,  but not automatic enrolment. Under the department’s State educatio​n fees procedure , a principal of a state school with an approved School EMP is able to charge a fee for recouping costs of enrolment processing (subject to consultation with the Parents and Citizens' Association) where:
  • the enrolment management plan permits the enrolment of a student living outside the catchment area based on cultural, sporting or academic merit
  • the significant number of prospective students living outside the catchment area and applying to enrol results in abnormal administrative costs to the school, for example, enrolment examination supervision and marking.

To participate in the Aviation High School selective entry program, applicants are required to pay the application fee and take the AGAT Test. Participating in the selective entry program selection process is no guarantee of successful enrolment at Aviation High School and any fees paid are non-refundable.

The Principal reserves the right to grant exemption for this fee payment in genuine circumstances of financial hardship.

Decisions on enrolment

The Principal is responsible for all decisions on enrolments and may request any additional documentation or conduct other enquiries deemed necessary to satisfy enrolment eligibility criteria.

Where the Principal forms a preliminary view that an application does not satisfy the conditions for the eligibility criteria for enrolment, applicants will be notified by email.

Applicants may respond to the Principal's preliminary view by making a submission to the Principal, no later than seven days after receiving the preliminary view letter.

If no submission is received, the Principal's preliminary view will be treated as the final decision and no further notice will be provided.

If a submission is received, the Principal will consider the submission and make a final decision. A final decision notice will be provided to the applicant as soon as is practicable. There is no internal review of the Principal's decision.
