School Enrolment Management Plan
Applethorpe State School recognises as its prime obligation, the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school's catchment area.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth, Applethorpe State School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future unless action is taken to manage enrolments. The Principal must restrict the enrolment of out-of-catchment students to ensure in-catchment students can enrol at their local state school without requiring additional facilities.
Student enrolment capacity
Applethorpe State School has a maximum student enrolment capacity of 72 students.
Local catchment area
A school's local catchment area is the defined geographical area from which the school is to have its core intake of students.
Applethorpe State School operates under an equidistant catchment area.
The school's catchment map is available from

The School Enrolment Management Plan for Applethorpe State School was gazetted on 28 October 2021.
