We are a Special School for students aged 15-18 with mild intellectual disability. 

Please read the school’s enrolment policy on our website to check the enrolment eligibility requirements before applying. Montague School is a single-mode Intellectual Disability school with specific IQ requirements and should not be considered an option for students who are or can be enrolled in a mainstream-traditional school.

Families who enrol at Montague School do so knowing that their child is capable of great things, with the awareness that they would benefit from a different approach to their education. Students entering Montague School join a community of true peers, something which can be transformative to their learning experience and academic success.

Our school population is modest compared to other schools, so we can provide individual and targeted attention to the unique needs of each student. Our experienced and professional staff provide a safe, caring and inspiring learning environment in which all students can develop academically, socially and emotionally. We know each student well enough to be able to set ambitious, realistic targets and put in place a personalised education plan that is right for them.

School tours are held every Wednesday between 10:00am - 12:00pm. You can book a tour online or contact the school.

If you believe Montague School is the right school for your child, please complete the online Expression of Interest form.

Prospective students, their parents/carers and any support service personnel will be invited to attend an enrolment meeting with the school Principal, and a personal tour and conversation with one of our student leaders.

Complete an Enrolment Pack and submit it to the school with the required documentation and supporting information that confirms your child meets the enrolment criteria.

Your enrolment submission will be assessed by the school to confirm your child’s enrolment category. If there is a suitable place available, you will receive an offer in writing outlining the details for acceptance. All offers are made in alignment with our Enrolment Policy and the Department of Education and Training guidelines.

Once the offer has been accepted, you are officially part of our school community. You will receive a start date for your orientation.

Montague School should not be considered an option for students who are or can be enrolled in a mainstream-traditional school.

Applications from students aged 15 to 18 who do not meet the above criteria will be considered on a case-by- case basis, in consideration of the student’s education and support needs.
