2025 Foundation (Prep) Enrolment

The Department of Education (DE) has released a new statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline.  The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Marlborough Primary School. Information can be found at Starting school page on the Vic Gov website.

The new timeline will apply for children starting Foundation (Prep) in 2025. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline in 2024 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2025 school year.

You can find information and resources about the new timeline, including factsheets, at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep). You can also download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers for the 2024 school year’ from the Starting School webpage (available from 15 April 2024).

You will be able to apply to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) 2024 at Marlborough Primary School from 15 April 2024.

Our school, like many others, is using the online system for new Foundation (Prep) enrolments to Victorian government schools, called VicStudents. This online platform is designed to provide an easier enrolment process for families and schools. We still accept paper application forms, however, if this is your preference, please contact us on 9870 3468.
