Our school zone

Our school zone is available on hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.

Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.

  • Complete the form:
  • The address shown must be the student’s current residential address
  • Identify Patterson River Secondary College as your first choice.
  • Return the completed form to the primary school by the due date.

You will be contacted by your Primary School after Patterson River Secondary College has informed them that we have accepted the student placement.

Recent Changes to School Zones

The Department of Education & Training recently announced new school zones. This has resulted in a change of the zone for Patterson River Secondary. The new zone excludes some housing that was previously considered to be in zone. These area includes pockets of Seaford, Chelsea, Chelsea Heights, Edithvale and Carrum Downs.

Families who reside in areas no longer considered inside of zone will need to ensure that they complete an out of zone application to support a Year 7 2020 enrolment application
