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.

Reserve list for entry in 2020

The reserve lists for entry in 2020 are now closed.

Progress of the reserve lists for entry in 2021

The reserve list progress will be updated whenever there is significant movement. If you see no change, revisit the list a few days later to see if more offers have been made. Updates will not be made to a regular schedule. We will contact you when your reserve place is reached.

After the end of the school year, the reserve list will not be updated online. If your child is still on the reserve list and you would like to see if there is further movement of the reserve list after that time, email
