Starting secondary school in 2024

On this page

Registration of interest for secondary school in 2024 starts on 1 May 2023 and closes on 26 May 2023.

For students enrolled at government primary schools, primary schools will send information to families.

For students enrolled at non-government primary schools, the registration of interest form will be available here to download then, or you can email Education.StartingSecondarySchool@sa.gov.au or you can approach your local secondary school for a hard copy form.

For information on the registration of interest and enrolment process, the starting secondary school in 2024 parent information brochure will be available here in March to download or you can approach your local secondary school for a hard copy.

Offers for enrolment

After the registration of interest process, you will receive an offer from the secondary school which your child has been allocated. You will receive the offer between Wednesday 9 August and Friday 11 August 2023.

The ‘allocation pack’ will be sent by email and includes:

  • the offer
  • enrolment form
  • any related documentation which the school requires you to complete and return.

Hardcopy packs will be available from your allocated secondary school for those not able to complete online.

You must follow the enrolment instructions in the allocation pack to secure your child’s place. This includes completing the enrolment form and providing all requested documents. You should do this by the date provided in the offer to make sure your offer does not lapse.

For information about how to accept your enrolment offer, see complete the online enrolment form to start secondary school which will be available in term 3.

How offers are allocated

Every effort is made to place students in the preferred order of secondary schools from your registration of interest.

If the number of applications exceeds the places available at the school, students may be allocated to 1 of the other schools nominated or their zoned/local school.

If your allocated secondary school is not your first choice, the offer for enrolment will also include information about how to request a review of the decision.
