Enrolment Process

How do I enrol my child?

You will first need to confirm that you live inside our catchment zone and Torquay Coast Primary School is your closest school. This can be checked on the Find My School website. Please note that we are unable to take enrolments from outside of the school catchment zone. 

Once you have established that you reside within our school zone, you will need to complete an Enrolment Application Form. You can download a copy below or collect one from our administration office.

Unfortunately due to student safety reasons we are unable to run individual tours for families. We have created an online virtual tour of the school for this reason. Please click HERE to view this virtual tour of our school.

A website has been created for families who are starting / transitioning to our school. This website contains a wealth of information regarding your child starting school; including student charges, purchasing uniform, future dates and the Prep transition timeline.

Click HERE to view this website and save it to your favourites, this website will be updated as more information becomes available.

The below documentation, including the enrolment form, can be emailed to torquay.coast.ps@education.vic.gov.au or handed into our administration office.

Please ensure you have all the correct documentation before submitting your enrolment.
We cannot except an incomplete enrolment.

  1. Evidence of Child's Date of Birth - We require a copy of your childs Birth Certificate, and if your child was not born in Australia, a passport and a Visa will be accepted;
  2. Immunisation Status Certificate - This is obtained through medicare, and can be downloaded from your My Gov account. We are unable to accept your child's 'coloured book';
  3. Proof of Residence - You will be asked to provide documents to verify your child's permanent residence. Any combination of the documents in the link provided are acceptable, as long as they add up to at least 100 points. Please click HERE to access information on Residential address check.
