Year 7 Intake

The Department for Education has short-listed Mitcham Girls High School as a potential pilot school to ‘Lead the Way’ and offer Year 7 in a high school setting from 2020. We have been shortlisted because of our focus in progressive approaches to quality teaching and learning, our safe and supportive environment and our extensive transition program. Participation in the pilot is voluntary, therefore whether the pilot program goes ahead is dependent on the number of parents who register an interest for their current Year 6 children to enrol at Mitcham Girls High School in 2020. Registrations of Interest to Enrol close on 24 May 2019.
