Year 6-7 Enrolment

Year 6 students applying for Year 7

Effective Term 1, 2022, the intake areas for five high schools, including Picnic Point HS, changed for prospective Year 7 students to provide a choice of both co-ed and single-sex options to more families living in the East Hills area.

From 2022, intake areas for the following schools were adjusted:

  • East Hills Boys High School
  • East Hills Girls Technology High School
  • Menai High School
  • Picnic Point High School
  • Sir Joseph Banks High School

Why have the intake areas changed for our school?

After an analysis of demographic and enrolment trends, intake areas are being adjusted to ultimately offer both co-educational and single sex options, beginning with Year 7 enrolments in 2022.

How do I find out which intake area I live in?

By visiting the 2022 interactive intake map you are able to check the local high school for your residential address. 

Who does the change apply to?

The new intake area only applies to Year 7 enrolments in 2022 but will gradually extend to all grades by 2025. The existing 2021 intake area remains in place for Years 8-12 in 2022.

Will siblings have to attend different schools?

Enrolment applications for older students or students living outside of the new intake area, will be considered on a case-by-case basis in line with the Department’s enrolment policy.

Other circumstances involving siblings will be considered in line with the Department’s enrolment policy guidelines.
