Moving to a new school can be both an exciting and challenging time for students and parents.

Make the best possible start

The staff and students at Adelaide Botanic High School understand that the move from Primary School to Secondary School is a significant milestone. That's why the whole school community is involved in welcoming students and helping them transition to their new school.

The process of applying for Secondary School begins when students are in their final year of Primary School and is facilitated by the Department for Education’s statewide transition process. Once this transition process has been completed and students have been advised of their successful enrolment at Adelaide Botanic High School, they are guided through a special transition program designed to make them feel known and welcomed into the school community as quickly as possible.
