Catchment and enrolment

Fortitude Valley State Secondary College

The new Fortitude Valley State Secondary College (SSC) will increase state secondary schooling capacity in the inner city school network to help accommodate the strong and sustained population growth in inner Brisbane.

Catchment

With the establishment of every new school, a catchment area is defined to assist in managing enrolment demand.

A state school’s catchment area is the geographical area from which a state school is to have its core intake of students.

The initial draft catchment for the Fortitude Valley SSC was developed using an equidistant methodology determined by the Queensland Government Statistician’s Office.

In response to community feedback received, the department has realigned the catchment boundary to avoid splitting streets between two catchments and to follow main roads and natural landmarks to allow for a more logical boundary division.

This has resulted in a slight increase to the north eastern boundary and slight reduction to the north western boundary to prevent the division of residential streets.

These adjustments are consistent with the approach taken for the new Inner City South State Secondary College.

Enrolment Management Plan

The school will operate with an Enrolment Management Plan.

Transitional arrangements for the Fortitude Valley State Secondary College Enrolment Management Plan allow for:

  • students who reside in the proposed Fortitude Valley SSC catchment, and are currently enrolled at a neighbouring secondary school, may remain enrolled at that school for the duration of their studies;
  • siblings of these students may also enrol at that local secondary school provided they remain living locally within that school’s former catchment; and
  • families with primary school aged children living in the new Fortitude Valley SSC catchment, who currently live in the Kelvin Grove State College (KGSC) catchment, may choose to enrol at either KGSC or Fortitude Valley SSC.

Enrolment Process

With the catchment finalised, enrolments are now open.

Parents and care-givers are encouraged to contact the Fortitude Valley State Secondary College Business Manager, Mrs Leissl Lovely at llove23@eq.edu.au or via telephone on 0436 802 065.
