Enrolment

How to enrol 

Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.

The application form must be completed in English. However, a translated application to enrol may help you to fill out the form in English.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.

Distance education schools also provide single subjects for students in Years 9 to 12 to enhance curriculum choice. Please contact us for details.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

Newcastle Junior School, is a School for Specific Purposes (SSP).  We are unable to accept direct enrolments from the community.

Parents will need to contact their local primary school to create their child’s Disability Confirmation Sheet and complete an Access Request Form for this  setting. This paper work is then sent by the local primary to Student Services at Newcastle Office, in Bull St Newcastle, where students are then placed at the most appropriate setting by the Regional Placement Panel.

Once a placement has been offered, and you are wanting to accept the placement offer, please contact our Principal for an appointment to enrol.
