Enrolment

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 

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

For more information, visit high school enrolment or contact us to discuss your child’s enrolment.

Application forms 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 (non-local placements) only if places are available.

Where non local placements exceed availability of positions the school will establish a Placement Panel to consider and make recommendations on all non-local enrolment applications. The application is submitted to the non local area placement panel consisting of:

  • School Representative - Principal or Deputy Principal
  • Parents and Citizens Representative
  • Principal Chairing the Panel - casting vote if needed

A written application on the non-local area application form must be completed covering the following:

  • siblings currently attending Singleton High School
  • attendance at partner primary school
  • academic performance and achievements and a demonstrated commitment to learning
  • physical, emotional and medical needs related to a student’s well being
  • safety and supervision of student before and after school
  • availability and /or combination of subjects
  • compassionate circumstances

When addressing the criteria it should be clear and concise and specifically prove the case for enrolment of the student, to the placement panel. The panel will evaluate the application and make a recommendation to accept or reject the application based against the criteria.

More information is available by reading the SHS Enrolment Policy
