Change of Middle School Intake Years

In 2019, Year 7 is becoming part of the secondary school in most South Australian Catholic schools, including Mercedes College.

For this reason we’ve had key entry points at Years 6, 7 and 8 for Middle School students in recent years.

From 2021, we’ll have main entry points at Year 6 and Year 7, with three Year 6 classes, and five Year 7 classes. Year 8 will no longer be a key intake year.

If there are vacancies between Year 8 to Year 12, positions will be offered according to our Enrolment Policy.
