Demand for entry to Doncaster Secondary College at all levels is high. Our College is your neighbourhood school if it is the closest state government secondary college to your permanent residence in a straight line to the College boundary. Places are offered to those students who move into the area with their parent/s during the school year. If the student already lives in our local area and is attending a school, a place will be offered in the following year. Applications for enrolment for students who live outside our neighbourhood area are only offered if there are vacancies. The number of vacancies varies from year to year and between the year levels. Enquiries should be directed to the relevant.
