Enrolment Information

 

Transition to High School:

Our transition program ensures that students feel prepared and supported within their new environment. We invite prospective families to tour our school and meet our dedicated staff. During Term 1 each year, we hold an Open Night to showcase our school facilities and specialist programs. In addition, you may wish to join one of our Principal’s Tours, which take place throughout the year. Booking can be made online via the link on the homepage.

Enrolment Process:

In 2021, year 6 and year 7 students at public primary schools will receive application information from their school.

There is an online registration of interest form for public school families who will receive a unique URL for their child via email or letter from their primary school at the beginning of Term 2, 2021. Details can be found here: https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/education-and-learning/schools/choosing-a-school/enrolling-in-high-school

Year 6 and 7 students at non-government schools who are in-zone and wish to apply for Aberfoyle Park High School can receive application information by emailing: education.startingsecondaryschool@sa.gov.au

The Department for Education is committed to integrating Year 7s into high school by 2022 and Aberfoyle Park High School is aligned to this commitment.

Aberfoyle Park Zone:

Our school zone is a defined area surrounding our school from which we accept the core intake of students. A student’s zoned school is determined according to their primary place of residence. To confirm if your permanent residential address is within the shared zone, use the Department for Education School Finder Tool:
https://www.education.sa.gov.au/parents-and-families/enrol-school-or-preschool/find-school-zone-or-catchment-area

Students residing within the Aberfoyle Park High School zone will be enrolled if they apply. For students residing outside of the zone, acceptance is subject to capacity.

Out of Zone:

Depending on capacity and the availability of places, we may accept enrolment requests from students outside our zone. You can register your interest to attend our school on the Registration of Interest form by indicating Aberfoyle Park High School as your ‘Choice 1 School’.

If places are available, selection for entry will be based on:

  •  distance from your home to our school
  •  curriculum requirements that cannot be offered at your local school
  •  social and family links to our school
  •  transport and location convenience
  •  compelling reasons which prohibit your child from attending their local school

If you are not offered a place at any of your choice schools, you will be added to the ranked waiting list for the school and offered a place if one becomes available. If there isn’t a place available at your choice of secondary school you will be offered a place at your local school.

Students who are allocated to Aberfoyle Park High School for commencement of Year 7 and Year 8 in 2022 will be advised around mid-August 2021.
