Enrolling at ABHS

Enrolment criteria for entering Secondary School

Year 7 public school students will be taught in high school from Term 1, 2022. Applications for high school in 2022 through the Department for Education’s transition process have now closed.

To be eligible for a Year 7 allocation in 2023 through the Transition to Secondary School process applicants will be required to meet one of the following requirements:

When demand from families living in the shared zone exceeds places available, consideration will be given to:

  • students with siblings currently at the school
  • distance from the child’s home to the school
  • social and family links to the school
  • curriculum options only available at the preferred school (excluding special interest programs), and transportation and location convenience

ABHS - Transition to High School

After the transition process is completed, the enrolment process returns to normal and the schools will make every attempt to accommodate and share enrolments in the zone.

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

Proof of residency

If you are applying as living in the shared zone, supporting documentation must be provided of your child’s permanent residential address prior to Adelaide Botanic High School confirming the enrolment.

Documentation must include:

  • If the parent/guardian owns their home: A copy of the contract of sale for the property or a recent council rates notice, and a recent gas or electricity bill for that property.
  • If the parent/guardian rents their home: A rental agreement and a bond receipt lodged with Consumer and Business Services showing the current place of residence. The rental agreement should cover at least the first 12 months the child will be attending the school, and a recent gas or electricity bill for that property.
