Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Check your address on School Finder to see if it is within our local intake area. Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol

Apply online. If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident you are eligible to complete the online enrolment application. You will then need to finalise the application at the school.

If you are not eligible or prefer not to enrol online, use the application to enrol (PDF 768.4KB) form. Please complete the form in English. A translated application to enrol may help you do this.

For more information, visit secondary school enrolment.

Out-of-area 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

The Temporary Residents Program has information about eligibility and the forms to complete an application.

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.

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

Students are entitled to be enrolled in their designated government school (their local school).

All schools are required to have clear guidelines about the process on which non-local enrolments will be accepted. These guidelines must be available to parents and those seeking enrolment at the school. The processes used to decide whether or not a non-local enrolment request can be accommodated must be open and transparent.

No student requesting enrolment is to be discriminated against on the grounds of race, age, religion, ethnicity, disability, sexual preference or marital status.

Families can check if they reside within the intake area for TJHS by visting the NSW Public School Finder website. Families will be asked to complete the 100 point residential check to verify that the student being presented for enrolment lives within the intake area. A list of approved documents can be found here.

Enrolment ceilings and buffers

An enrolment ceiling is necessary to cater for local community needs.

Within the enrolment ceiling, it is anticipated that a buffer of 10 places will be maintained in each year group to accommodate for local students arriving throughout the year.

Places in the buffer will not be offered to non-local students unless approved by the Principal due to special circumstances.

All out-of-area applications will all go before the appropriate Placement Panel.

Year 6 into Year 7 enrolments

If your child is currently enrolled in Year 6 in a public primary school, and you wish to apply to enrol in our school in Year 7 of the following year, contact the Year 6 Coordinator at your current school to obtain an "Expression of Interest" form to complete and return to them. The primary school will forward the information to us and we will contact you once a decision has been made about your child's potential enrolment, and next steps.

If your child is currently enrolled in Year 6 in a non-government primary school, and you wish to apply to enrol in our school in Year 7 of the following year, contact us to obtain an "Expression of Interest" form to complete and return to us. We will contact you once a decision has been made about your child's potential enrolment, and next steps.

TJHS Enrolment Policy

A new local intake area for TJHS will change in 2023. Demographic and enrolment trends, as well as the scope of permanent accommodation were analysed at The Jannali High School (TJHS) and Engadine High School (HS) leading to an adjustment of each school’s intake area.  

Visit the 2023 intake area map (or detailed map) to see the new intake areas for TJHS and Engadine HS.

FAQs:

When does the change take place?

The new local intake areas take effect Term 1, 2023 but if families wish to use the arrangement for their children commencing Year 7 in 2022, they can.

This means that:

  • It will be optional for Year 6 students living in the new intake area and commencing high school in 2022 to enrol Engadine High School. Their other choice is to enrol into TJHS which is currently designated for their area.
  • From 2023, the new intake areas will provide just one designated high school for new enrolments.

Q3. Who does the change apply to?

The change largely affects Year 6 students undergoing the High School Expression of Interest (EOI) process. 

Year 6 students commencing high school in 2022 will have the option to enrol in either TJHS which is designated under the existing intake area or Engadine High School designated under the new intake area.

Year 6 students commencing high school in 2023 will have one designated high school for enrolment - Engadine High School. 

For local, in-area students attending Loftus Public School the local intake area change offers Engadine HS as the designated school instead of TJHS.

Q4. Will my child/children need to transfer to a different school because of this change?

No.

Q5. Will siblings have to attend different schools?

If your child has a sibling already at TJHS or Engadine HS they will be able to enrol into those schools in line with the Department’s enrolment policy.

Other circumstances involving siblings will be considered in line with the Department’s enrolment policy guidelines.

How to enrol 

During the enrolment process, let the principal know of any special circumstances, allergies, health or medical conditions affecting your child.
