Enrolment Catchment Map
A catchment area is the geographical area from which a state school is to have its core intake of students. School catchment areas are calculated on equal distance principles by the Queensland Government Statistician’s Office (QGSO), using specialist mapping software. QGSO calculates catchment boundaries by calculating the equal distance to and from the main entrances of neighbouring schools using the shortest, trafficable return route by road. This method ensures each residence is located within the catchment area of their closest school.
Catchment areas are not fixed or static and are reviewed annually taking into account any alterations in the preceding 12 months and as a result of a review, a majority of the changes have been to equidistance boundaries.
The 2019 catchment review for Ashgrove State School was finalised in October 2018 and the revised catchment boundaries are now available on the EdMap website link below.
