Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at Brighton Secondary College. We understand that choosing the right College is very important and matching a child with a College is a carefully considered decision.
We are often approached by parents searching for a College that offers a broad curriculum, new experiences, excellent teaching staff and facilities, and programs designed to encourage students to excel and reach their highest potential. We are proud of our reputation at BSC to be able to offer all of this, and more.

We organise College tours for your convenience to see the College in action – these require a booking. Tour dates are published on our website, and are co-ordinated around College activities to ensure the least disruption to our current students, whilst giving a full College experience. College Tours are the best source of information for potential students and their parents/guardians.
Due to the high level of demand to fill the limited places at our College, we have been classified as a Secondary College with neighbourhood boundaries. All students residing within our boundaries are guaranteed a place at BSC. The Boundary Map can be viewed here
College handbooks are located on our website under the Junior and Senior School tabs. The handbooks list the subjects and curriculum offered by BSC at each specific year level. Junior School covers Years 7-9 and Senior School covers Years 10-12.
Enrolment into Year 7
Student placements are co-ordinated between the Primary School and Secondary College. This process occurs April to May of the year when your child is in Grade 6. Parents work with their Primary School Transition Co-ordinator for the enrolment process until the offers are made. The timeline is determined by the Department of Education and Training, and places are usually offered at the end of August to early September.
Enrolment into Years 8-12
Parents contact the College directly for an Expression of Interest Form. Those students residing within our boundaries are guaranteed a place. If places are available we may be able to offer to students who reside outside our boundary, however, there is no guarantee. Interviews are conducted for every new student enrolling at the College, whether you reside in our boundary or not. Successful applicants will be issued enrolment papers after the interview.
Placements are based on the residential address at the time of enrolment, and with the Expression of Interest Form you are requested to submit two documents to support your residential address.
Please contact the General Office at BSC for an Expression of Interest Form to be sent out to you.
There is a separate procedure for International Students to enrol at the College. Please refer to the International Program information on our website here
