Enrolment Policy and Process
The College has experienced an increased demand for places in Year 7 but also in all other levels due to exceptional, unabated and unprecedented growth in its school population over the past five years. Viewbank College has an enrolment cap; therefore permanent residency in the immediate vicinity where the College is the closest school is the main consideration.
