For planning purposes we request applications from the parents of students who live in our home zone, for entry into Year 9 in 2023, to be in the hands of WGC by 25/7/2022.  This is not a deadline.  In zone applications can be accepted at any time by the enrolment officer

The College is limited in the number of places it is able to offer students at each level. As a consequence it operates an enrolment scheme. For more information please read this document. The order of priority for students is as follows:

Home Zone Enrolments

All students who live within the home zone  are entitled to enrol at the school. Proof of permanent residence within the home zone is required.

Zone Description

Out of Zone Enrolments

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • Special needs (not applicable as we do not operate an MOE approved programme)
  • Siblings of current students
  • Siblings of former students
  • Daughters of former students
  • Children of BOT employees and Board members
  • All other applicants

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Schedule 20 of the Education and Training Act 2020. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

Applicants seeking second, third or fourth priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.

Year 9 Ballot

Ballot for out of zone places at Year 9 level will be held on 01 August 2022. We will not know how many, if any, out of zone places will be available for next year until after 25 July 2022 when all the enrolments are in. In the last ten years we have offered places to siblings and former siblings in some years, but rarely daughters of old girls. Category 5 (with no connection to the school) places were offered in 2022 but prior to that we have not been able to offer places since 2011.
