Out of Area Enrolments 

Windsor High School Out of Area Policy

Parents and caregivers can check if their residence address is in area for Windsor High School by going to the ‘School Finder’ site (

In accordance with the Department of Education Policy, students whose residential address is out of our drawing area will be considered for enrolment where there are spaces in classes (allowing for a buffer for “in area” enrolments); where the school has the necessary resources to meet the individual student’s needs; the school is under its capped numbers, AND when one or more of the following criteria have been met.

Out of Area Enrolment Criteria

  1. Siblings already enrolled at the school.
  2. Bus transport to local school not available but is available to school where enrolment is sought.
  3. Parents currently live out of area but can provide evidence of pending move to local area.
  4. Student attended primary school in area for high school, but residential address is out of area for the high school and there are strong peer connections. Evidence of impact on child can be provided.
  5. Parents work in proximity to the school where enrolment is sought and bus transport to local school is unavailable.
  6. Extenuating circumstances considered on case-by-case basis. Extenuating circumstances need to be supported by evidence.

Out of area Process

Parents/Carers who want their child/children to be considered for an ‘Out of Area’ enrolment need to complete the “Application for Non-local enrolment” form, which is available at the school’s front office in paper form, but also included on the website.

The application will then be presented to the school’s Out of Area Enrolment panel, which meets fortnightly, to discuss applications. This panel consists of the Deputy Principal’s, a teacher, and a parent representative. All panel members will be asked to confirm they have no conflict of interest when considering the individual applications.

The decision of the panel will be communicated in writing to the parent/carer. Unsuccessful non-local applicants may appeal against the decision of the enrolment panel by writing to the principal, including additional information, and providing additional relevant evidence. The purpose of the appeal is to determine whether the stated criteria have been applied equitably. The principal will respond in writing with the appeal decision.

If the matter is not resolved at the school level, the final level of appeal is to the Director, Educational Leadership.
