Year 6 to Year 7 Transition 

Transitioning into secondary school can often be a daunting time for both students and their families. Here at LCS, we aim to make the transition to high school as easy as possible, by communicating with both families and secondary schools the necessary information, enrolment dates and answering any questions you may have.

Our main purpose however, is to help students deal with the anxiety of their transition process, by providing them with opportunities such as:


Information for parents and carers on how to enrol and support their child moving from primary to secondary school. In Victoria, students normally start secondary school when they reach Year 7.


Steps to enrol your child in secondary school


If your child is seeking a place in Year 7 at a secondary school next year, you will need to visit the department's "Moving from primary to secondary school" page then:


If your secondary school preferences include a school or schools that are not your designated neighbourhood school, you should read about School zones and how they work and how applications are prioritised using the Department’s Placement Policy, as outlined on the Enrolling in school webpage.


Year 7 placement is decided by secondary schools. However, all communication about your child's placement must be with the Year 6 Coordinator or Transition Coordinator at Lockington Consolidated School until the placement is confirmed.


You will receive notification of your child's Year 7 placement offer on Wednesday 17 July 2024.


All government secondary schools will host a Year 7 Orientation Day (for Year 6 students) on Tuesday 10 December.
