Enrolment at East Hills Boys High School
East Hills Boys High School was opened in 1955. In the late 1980s, the government changed enrolment rules to allow students and their parents to have some choice of which high school to attend. As a result, the school population has been on the increase with a waiting list in every year group allowing a broad academic curriculum, and many extracurricular activities to be conducted.

If you are applying out of area for Year 7 you will need to complete the Criteria For Students Living Out Of Area Form and submit it with your expression of interest.
2024 Criteria For Students Living Out Of Area Form
A placement panel is formed to consider and make recommendations based on the established criteria on all enrolment applications. The composition of the panel follows Department of Education and Communities guidelines. In assessing the application of the criteria to individual cases, the panel will consider only those matters presented on the application form and not oral or other submissions.
The placement panel will consider and make recommendations on all non-local enrolment applications.
Criteria for non-local enrolment applications
The placement criteria for non-local applicants listed below will be used by the panel to establish an order of placement, so as to either offer a position at the school (when local enrolment numbers permit) or placement on a waiting list.
Selection criteria for out of area students
- Demonstrated commitment to learning
- example of leadership experiences
- access to single-sex education
- curriculum provisions - availability of courses and combinations of courses
- interests/abilities - special interest or ability
- medical/compassionate circumstances
- siblings - not automatic entry, but consideration is given
- safety aspects and proximity to school – eg safety and supervision of the student before and after school
Students from out of area wishing to apply should include all supporting evidence that may assist the intake panel in making a decision. The principal will ensure that the established criteria are applied equitably to all applicants.
International students should visit education international for further information and requirements.
Prospective international students should also make themselves familiar with our International Student's Handbook (above).
