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.
As a result of our high enrolment demand, we do not currently offer any Principal tours, but we 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
The Department for Education is committed to integrating Year 7s into high school by 2022 and Seaview is aligned to this commitment.
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 the first term of the year before your child starts high school, you will receive notification from the primary school which contains a link for the online registration of interest form, to nominate the public secondary school you want your child to attend. If they currently attend a non-government school, you can get application information from our school, your local education office or by filling in the registration of interest form for non-government school students (PDF 378KB) and emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 their primary schools in Term 3 of the year before they start high school.” Then continue with the following: “Seaview High School offers a comprehensive transition program for Year 7 students joining us as in Year 8. The transition entails a two-day program that is provided to support students to familiarise themselves with the school, to make new friends and to meet current student leaders and staff.
The days provide 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. The transition also includes a parent information session in the evening and extended time when the Uniform Shop.
The number of in-zone students applying for year 8 entry in 2021 means we have not accepted any out of zone applications via the preference system.
This decision is based on the Department for Education’s enrolment policy and procedures and ensures we maintain sustainable enrolment at year 8.
In line with the policy, the only out of zone students considered for enrolment were children with a sibling currently at the school and those offered a place in a special interest program.

Year 7 to HS
Year 7 is moving to high school
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
