Schools & Education
Bancroft is lucky to have amazing schools, both State and Independent. I am proud of the Palaszczuk Government’s record of delivering millions of dollars in infrastructure investment to our local schools, as well as committing to building a new High School in Mango Hill, to take pressure off of North Lakes State College.
If you are looking to find a local school please visit the Queensland Schools Directory.
School Enrolment Management Plans
Most state schools in Bancroft are on School Enrolment Management Plans (School EMP).
A School EMP is introduced in a state school which is nearing its student enrolment capacity. In order to ensure sufficient facilities are available for in-catchment students, Principals of these schools are required to restrict the enrolments from out-of-catchment students.
Schools are required to implement a School EMP when enrolments reach 80% of the school’s student enrolment capacity. A school’s student enrolment capacity is the number of students the school can accommodate within the existing learning spaces in the school.
