Upper Coomera State College (UCSC) provides access to an appropriate
educational service for students whose principal place of residence is
within the schools catchment area. Because of enrolment capacity and
growth it is necessary for UCSC to take action to manage enrolments. We
have limited capacity to accept enrolments from outside the catchment
The enrolment management plan (EMP) sets out the conditions under which students may be enrolled
at UCSC, subject to any other requirements or limitations as detailed in
the enrolment management plan on the Education Queensland website. The EMP is to be read in conjunction with the catchment area map.
The school's enrolment capacity for students who live outside the local catchment is dependent upon:
the school's enrolment capacity
catering for in-catchment enrolments
allowing for in-catchment growth during the year
ensuring an even spread of students across all year levels while maintaining class size targets.
As UCSC is a prep to 12 school it has three catchment areas; one for years prep to 6, one for years 7 to 10 (negotiated) and one for years 11 to 12
All students who reside within the local catchment area and are
eligible for enrolment in the educational program offered by the school
have a right to enrolment at the school. The Principal will hold places
for students who relocate to within the catchment boundary throughout
the school year.
Out of catchment enrolment
Students who reside outside the school's local catchment boundary are
required to submit an Application for Out of Enrolment Catchment Area
form along with your enrolment documentation.

Students out of catchment who apply for enrolment at the school will
be put on a waiting list in order of receipt of application. Where there
is spare capacity, students will be enrolled from the waiting list
based on the following criteria and order of priority:
Years 7 to 12 students requesting enrolment in one of our four
Signature programs, who demonstrate a high level of academic, and/or
cultural arts and/or sporting achievement through documentary evidence.
Children and young people who are subject to child protection orders
that grant guardianship or custody to the Chief Executive Officer of
the Department of Child Safety.
Siblings of students already enrolled.
Students who reside outside the catchment area and who officially
leave the school have right of re-entry within one semester. After one
semester re-admission will be considered in accordance with the
If students' change school due to change of residence and request to
return to Upper Coomera State College, they have right of entry within a
semester of their departure. If greater than a semester, parents can
request enrolment and are subject to vacancy availability as determined
by the Principal.
Places for students living outside the defined enrolment boundary
will be managed to ensure an even spread of students across year levels
and to ensure the total enrolment does not exceed the school's
accommodation capacity for students.
Applications will be considered after the Principal has analysed the
availability of enrolment vacancies currently and in the future in year
levels across the school and then in order of receipt. Students will be
placed in classes at the discretion of the Principal.
An offer of enrolment for a student who resides outside the catchment
area for a particular year level is for that student only. Siblings
will be considered for admission in accordance with the enrolment
criteria subject to available space.
