We welcome your enrolment inquiry. Enrolment into Blackwood High School is managed by our Student Wellbeing Leaders. Please contact the school on (08) 8278 0900 to discuss your child’s enrolment into Blackwood High School.
Most students come to our school in Year 8. Year 8 enrolments are organised via a central departmental process, not by the school. Parents/Caregivers with students in Year 7 will receive a transition package via their primary school, included in this package is an Application for Enrolment in Year 8 (ED176). The ED176 is then forwarded to the Department for Education. The due date for the application to be submitted is mid-May. The Department for Education then allocates our school the new cohort of Year 8 students for the following year. Students and families will be notified if they have been allocated a place at Blackwood High School in mid-August.
Parents/Caregivers with students in Year 8 at a non-government school wishing to enrol at Blackwood High School, please contact the school to arrange for a transition package to be posted to your home.
For Years 9-12, the school is able to accommodate a limited number of out-of-zone enrolments. Such enrolments will involve communication between Blackwood High School and the school at which the student is currently enrolled.
Our zoned feeder primary schools are Belair, Bellevue Heights, Blackwood, Coromandel Valley, Eden Hills and Hawthorndene Primary Schools. Large numbers of students also come from Craigburn and Flagstaff Hill Primary Schools and other out of zone Primary Schools.
Students living in the area bounded by Mill Terrace (and its extension eastwards) the western boundary of the Hills Face Zone, Brownhill Creek, the eastern boundary of the Hills Face Zone, the Sturt River, the southern and eastern boundaries of Flinders University and Shepherds Hill Road, will be enrolled if they apply for Blackwood High. We have added a zone map link below.
