Year 6 to Year 7 Transition

Moving from Year 6 into Year 7 is a very exciting time for students and their families. At Berwick College, we follow the Department of Education and Training statewide transition program. Most of the transition for Year 6 to 7 in 2023 is handled by your primary school. They will distribute a “Year 6 into 7 Transition Information Pack” to families early in Term 2 or you can download the ‘Placement Information Pack’ (available Week 1, Term 2, 2022). This process involves you nominating the secondary school you would like your child to attend. Completed application forms are then returned to your child’s primary school.

All communication about your child’s placement must be with the Year 6 Coordinator or Transition Coordinator at your child’s primary school until the placement is confirmed.

Year 7 placement is decided by secondary schools. You will receive notification of your child’s year 7 placement, from your primary school on Wednesday 20th July.

By holding a year 7 information night in early Term two and numerous tours in both Terms one and Term two (conducted by our assistant principals), we hope families will be as informed as possible about our college and what we can offer for every student. We also have a virtual tour available to view at any time on our website.

The dates and information below are subject to change and we encourage families to regularly check our website and Facebook page for the most up to date information.

Our school zone is available on  findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined based on your permanent residential address.

Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
