How to Enrol
Seaview High School is a co-educational, zoned state secondary school, focused on developing a community of learners that is inclusive of all students. Seaview staff prioritise developing a deep knowledge and understanding of our pupils and we offer a range of flexible academic programs, providing extension, acceleration and support.
Due to our continued growth we are no longer able to accept general enrolments from outside our school zone. Families living outside our school zone, seeking enrolment at Seaview High School in current high school year levels, will be directed to their zoned school or encouraged to remain at their current school. Eligible siblings of current students wanting to enrol, will be processed as a normal enrolment enquiry, and will be advised that any acceptance will be at the beginning of the next available year.
We will be offering information sessions throughout the year and these will be promoted via our website and Facebook page. Once the bookings open, if you require assistance in making a booking via SOBS please use these instructions.
We also have a comprehensive Virtual 360 Tour to highlight our learning areas.
If you have moved to our school zone and are looking to enrol, please contact the school and provide us with your proof of address by way of the following:
– recent gas or electricity bill in enrolling parent/s’ name and showing the supply address AND
– rental agreement covering at least 12 months or a contract of sale
Find your closest zoned and unzoned schools by using the Department for Education website.
Please contact Sadie Gomer, Executive Assistant, via email Sadie.Gomer213@schools.sa.edu.au for all enrolment enquiries.
Primary School to High School Transition
Entry into high school follows the Department for Education transition process.
In 2021, both Year 6 and Year 7 students will be applying for and enrolling in secondary schools to start in 2022.
Early in Term 2 (of the child’s last year in primary school) 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 to nominate the public secondary school you want your child to attend.
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 emailing email@example.com.
See the starting preschool or school webpage for more information.
Once all primary school students have been allocated to their high school by the Department for Education, they will receive a high school enrolment package via email in Term 3 of their last year of primary school. Seaview High School offers a comprehensive transition program for primary school students joining us for high school. This includes identifying and developing any extra support systems the students may need. The transition program is provided to support students to familiarise themselves with the school, to make new friends and to meet current student leaders and staff. It is also how the school ensures all students have a smooth transition to high school.
The Transition Days for 2021 into 2022 are as follows:
Tues 30 Nov & Wed 1 Dec: Year 6 into 7
Thurs 2 & Fri 3 Dec: Year 7 into 8
The program provides opportunities for students to discover some of the many exciting things that Seaview High School offers, through engaging in a range of interactive activities and lessons.
In line with the Department for Education enrolment policy, the only out of zone students considered for enrolment at Seaview High School in 2022 will be children who have auditioned or trialled, and are offered a place in our Special Interest Dance or High Performance Tennis programs or siblings of current students (see the department’s website above for clarification re students who gained entry via special interest programs and their sibling’s rights).

Year 7 public school students will be taught in high school from Term 1, 2022.
This means that from 2022, Year 6 will be the last year of primary school and Year 7 will be the first year of high school.
Year 7 is already part of high school across the country, so this move will bring South Australia in line with other states and territories, as well as other education systems in our state.Read More
