Kindergarten to year 6 students who live in the suburb of Theodore and some of Calwell Priority Enrolment Area (PEA) - Primary Schools are automatically eligible for a place at Theodore Primary School. Evidence showing your place of residence is required upon enrolment.

After students in the PEA have been offered enrolment, consideration may be given to students residing elsewhere in the ACT. Students who live in NSW will be given consideration depending on the school's enrolment capacity.
