Enrolment

If you are in Year 6

Our Year 6 Information Night for Year 7 2025 will be held on Monday 11 March 2024 at 6pm in the School Hall. Entry via Cheltenham Road gates. 

A tour of the school is available on Wednesday 13 March, 2024 at 9am. 

From 2023, the NSW Department of Education will be moving to an online enrolment process for Year 7 2024 enrolments.

This new enrolment website will go live on Monday 6 March. However, parents may still use the current expression of interest form. These are obtained from your child's current public primary school or by following the links here. 

High school enrolment includes the expression of interest (EOI) form called Moving into Year 7 in a NSW government school (PDF 815KB)

Non-government school students can print this form to complete and hand to their local government high school for consideration.

If you are currently in Years 7 to 12

Please read the information below, then complete the school's enrolment enquiry form before contacting the school. A staff member will contact you to discuss your enquiry.

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

This will be issued to interested Year 7 students after the start of the year and following Year 7 camp.

Transferring or leaving school
