Year 6-7 enrolment procedure

Year 6 students applying for Year 7 2023

The process of enrolment into Year 7 at Picnic Point High School begins when students reach Year 6 (the last year of primary school).

Your primary school will provide each student with a ‘Moving Into Year 7 In A NSW Government School in 2023' booklet around March 2022. This booklet contains the ‘Expression of Interest Form'. The primary school will identify the designated local high school for each individual student on page 5. Parents and carers of students who live within the catchment area should return the completed Expression of Interest form to their primary school on or before Friday 18 March 2022.
