It moves to the east along Scroggs Hill Road and Saddle Hill Road to Coal Stage, encompassing properties on both sides of the road and down Coal Stage Road to the overbridge, across the motorway and State Highway One connecting with Chain Hills Road. It encompasses the properties on both sides of Chain Hills Road and on passing the intersection of Flower Street it stops at the end of the gravel formed road.
The Home Zone retraces its route and descends down Flower Street until it reaches Main South Road and encompasses the properties on both sides of Main South Road (and Flower Street), until it reaches Abbots Creek. It then moves along the Creek Bed, under the motorway, taking in the properties on the western side only until it reaches Jeffcoates Road. From there, where there is an overbridge which is excluded from the zone, it follows Jeffcoates road up to the intersection with Old Brighton Road, moves to the west again along Old Brighton Road until it reaches Finnie Road. It then follows Creamery Road along a near straight line up Scroggs Hill Road. The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of Education Act 1989.
Within the Home Zone, enrolment is optional to Fairfield School and entry to the school is guaranteed. To applicants outside the zone of enrolment scheme sets an order of priority if space is limited.
