Transition from Primary to Secondary Education can sometimes be a daunting experience for both families and students. At Berwick College we encourage families to take part in the many school activities leading up to this transition, to enable the journey to be as smooth and seamless as possible. Tours operate regularly throughout the year and are open to the whole family to attend.

Bookings for tours is essential and can be made by contacting the General Office on (03 8768 1000).

College activities include visits by our transition team to our local primary schools and events run at the College where primary students enjoy learning activities at a secondary level, as well as an Orientation Day in December.

Year 7 enrolment process

If your child is in Year 6 at a government primary school, your primary school will give you an Application for Year 7 Placement Form to complete in Term 2. On this form you will be asked to list three secondary schools in order of preference. This form is returned to your primary school. If Berwick College is listed as your first preference, the primary school will forward the information to our Junior School Leader, Ms Dee Longwill.

If your child attends an independent primary school, you may  contact the general office on (03) 8768 1000 for further information or download the Non Government Schools Application.

An Information Evening will be held each year where information is provided to parents about the application process and what Berwick College has to offer your child.

Students residing outside the Berwick College neighbourhood zone boundaries who are applying to Berwick College will need to attach a letter from their parent or guardian to the Application for Year 7 Placement form stating specific reasons for applying for enrolment.  All applications are individually reviewed, however placement is only guaranteed for students who reside within our zone.

A detailed map of the College boundaries is available for viewing at: Zone Information

For enrolments after the start of the academic year, please follow the year 8-12 Enrolment procedure
