Year 7 reserves

A student's reserve list position for each school is listed on his or her outcome advice letter. The next student on the list is offered a place when a student with an offer declines that offer.

A student's reserve list number does not change. In some cases, such as a result of a successful appeal, two students can be placed at the same reserve list number. When this happens the student with the higher score will be made the first offer.

If your child's place on a reserve list is reached, the Team will contact you.

Progress of the reserve lists for entry in 2022

The progress of the reserve lists is published here periodically as offers are made to fill vacancies.

The reserve lists for entry in 2021 are now closed. Any vacancies are held over for placement in Year 8.

A student has a reserve list position of 10 for Alexandria Park Community School. When an offer has been made to the student at place 9, we publish the number 9 above. The applicant then knows that the next offer will be made to place 10 if a vacancy occurs at that school.

End of year removal from reserve lists

The names of students who accept an offer to a selective high school in 2022 as well as having a place on the reserve list/s are removed from the reserve list/s after 3pm 15 December 2021. From this date until the end of Term 1 in the year of placement, offers will be made only to those remaining on reserve lists who have declined their previous offer or who have not yet received an offer.
