All Victorian children are guaranteed enrolment in a Government School.

Families whose residence is closer to Preston High School than to any other school are guaranteed a place.

Families living further away can still apply to Preston High School and the school will apply the Department of Education and Training Placement Policy to determine which students can enrol.

Please direct all queries or correspondence to our Enrolment Officer at
