High school zoning

We have developed a new school finder tool that will help you locate which preschool, primary or secondary school you are zoned to based on your street address and display the zone or preschool catchment area on a map, making it simpler to see not only your zone or preschool catchment area but nearby schools and services.

A high school zone is a defined area from which the school accepts its core intake of students. Most government high schools in metropolitan Adelaide are zoned.

With some exceptions, a student’s zoned school is determined according to their primary place of residence.

Acceptance into a particular high school is subject to its capacity, and the respective principal will be able to advise if they have available spaces.

Shared zones

A small number of schools share areas from which they accept core enrolments.

Where school zones overlap, enrolment enquiries can be directed to either principal who will be able to advise if they have available spaces.
