Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol 

Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.

For more information, visit high school enrolment.

Download an application to enrol (PDF 5.9MB).

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.

Non-local enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

Temporary visas and international students

For information about eligibility and forms to complete, visit the Temporary Residents Program.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.

Distance education schools also provide single subjects for students in Years 9 to 12 to enhance curriculum choice. Please contact us for details.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

Enrolment eligibility

In accordance with government policy, preference is given to local students and a buffer is maintained for new arrivals living in the area.

Where non-local applications exceed the number of places available in any year, factors such as sibling enrolments, curriculum choices, distance from the school and the availability of other schools will be considered. 

A waiting list for non-local enrolments will be based on the criteria outlined. 

International students who wish to enrol at St Ives High School must apply through the Department of Education's International students centre. Their enrolment will be considered on their competency in English and availability of English as a second language (ESL) support, availability of space within the year group, curriculum choices, distance from the school, gender balance within the school and the availability of other schools.
