Enrolment

Brighton Primary School warmly welcomes local and international families to join our friendly and inclusive school community.

“With the emerging challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, currently we’re not able to welcome prospective families into our school via our normal tours and parent workshops. While we expect and hope to be able to do this later in the year, Digital Enrolment Packs can be obtained by sending an email to brighton.ps@education.vic.gov.au We look forward to welcoming you to our school later in the year.”

Steve Meade | Principal

As an internationally minded school, our reputation stands on honouring our history, focusing on the present and preparing for the future. We believe that the growth of our children is at the heart of our community.
By focusing on the whole child, we facilitate a sense of belonging and achievement through powerful interactions with other learners and rich learning tasks.

To enrol at Brighton Primary School the Victorian Department of Education stipulates that families must live within the designated boundary or be eligible to enrol as part of our Hearing Unit.
