Enrolment Process

Students currently at another Secondary School

The transition to a new school is an exciting time for a young person and their family, as well as a challenging one. Our enrolment process for students moving to their new school ensures they are supported academically, socially, and emotionally. Our goal is that when you begin at Daylesford College, we have an extensive understanding of who you are, how you learn and how we can best support you at your new school.
