Register your child's interest for starting high school

For information on the registration of interest and enrolment process, read the starting secondary school in 2022 parent information brochure (PDF 652KB).

Families should receive a unique URL (or web address) by email or letter from their public primary school. This is for the online registration of interest form to nominate the public secondary school you want your child to attend for 2022.

Students at non-government schools who want to apply for a public high school can get application information from their local public high school, local education office, or by completing the registration of interest form for non-government school students (PDF 611KB) and submitting to education.startingsecondaryschool@sa.gov.au.
