Enrolling at Turner School
The ACT Education and Training Directorate's enrolment policy can be found through this link:
Enrolment of children with disabilities at Turner School is done through a centralised process. Please contact Disability Education on 62059391 for more information.
In keeping with the Directorate enrolment policy and procedures, Turner School accepts mainstream student enrolments in the following priority:
1. Students who reside in the Turner Priority Placement Area (PPA)
2. Siblings of current Turner students (ACT residents outside of Turner PPA)
3. ACT resident students outside of Turner PPA
4. NSW resident students
From term 2 2013 Turner School is in a position to consider enrolments from families outside the Turner PPA where capacity exists in that year level. Please contact the school to complete an enrolment enquiry.
