Brighton Secondary School is a high demand school and the Department for Education has implemented a formal Capacity Management Plan (CMP) that sets out our unique enrolment criteria.
A CMP is one of the strategies the department uses to support government schools that have more demand for enrolment than available places and assists us to maintain our highly valued special interest programs.
The specific terms of Brighton Secondary CMP are available at the following link SA Government Gazette – 26 November 2020.
