Catchment and enrolment

Inner City North State Secondary College

The new Inner City North 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.

The catchment for Inner City North SSC is being developed early to inform local communities on the changes that will be occurring.

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.

State school catchments are generally determined using equidistant principles. The Queensland Government Statistician’s Office calculates the distance to and from neighbouring schools using trafficable road networks by return journey to determine state school catchment boundaries.

The proposed catchment for the Inner City North SSC uses an equidistant methodology determined by the Queensland Government Statistician’s Office.

To find out if your property is within the proposed Inner City North SSC catchment please use our interactive web map. This map shows the proposed catchment for consultation purposes.

If you require further information on the proposed Inner City North SSC catchment, please email BuildingFutureSchools@qed.qld.gov.au.

Equidistant boundary

An equidistant boundary will be established around the Inner City North SSC, based on the equal distance to its neighbouring state high schools.

This is the approach normally used by the Department of Education when establishing catchments for new schools. An Enrolment Management Plan will be established to manage enrolments for the new school. Click here to view the draft Enrolment Management Plan.

The proposed enrolment management approach for the Inner City North SSC will prioritise students in the following order:

  1. in-catchment students – those students living within the new Inner City North SSC catchment area;
  2. out-of-catchment students living in the new smaller Kelvin Grove State College (KGSC) catchment; and
  3. students eligible for selective entry.

Transitional arrangements will allow for:

  • students who reside in the proposed Inner City North 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 Inner City North SSC catchment, who currently live in the KGSC catchment, may choose to enrol at either KGSC or Inner City North SSC.

Enrolment expressions of interest

The department is seeking expressions of interest for students wishing to enrol at the new Inner City North SSC.

Registering does not guarantee your child a place but ensures you are part of the developing school community.
