Naming a Campus

Purpose of this policy

To inform schools how to name or rename a campus.


Campus names should reflect their geographic location to minimise confusion between campuses. Schools may choose to name their campuses using:

  • street names
  • suburb names
  • names that are of significance to the school community.

If a school wants to change campus names, but the official school name is not changing, the school council is required to approve the campus name change. The school must advise the School Operations and Governance Unit in writing, providing evidence of school council approval for the name change: email:

The Unit provides the Registrar and the Data and Performance Analysis Branch with regular updates of campus name changes.

The Data Collection and Services Branch, Performance & Evaluation Division:

  • updates the Entity Register Search (ERS)
  • notifies key personnel by email.
