Enrolment

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at Kelmscott Senior High School.

Selecting a secondary school that best suits the needs of your child is a very important decision.

We thank you for considering our school, in entrusting your child’s education with us. Our staff aim to provide an educational environment in which your child can thrive.

Kelmscott Senior High School is a school of choice within our local and extended community. We are pleased to offer placement to those who reside within our defined local intake area; as well as those who live outside our local intake area via the range of approved specialist programs we offer.

The local intake area for our school contains all or part of the local intake areas of the following schools:

  • Clifton Hills Primary
  • Grovelands Primary
  • Kelmscott Primary
  • Kingsley Primary
  • Westfield Park Primary
  • Roleystone Community College (from Year 11)

Families wishing to enrol their child at Kelmscott SHS, will need to complete an ‘Application for Enrolment’, and provide the listed accompanying documents.

Application for Enrolment

Upon a successful application, an ‘Enrolment Package’ will be forwarded to you for completion.

Specialist Programs

For more information about our range of approved and school based specialist programs, please see: Specialist programs

Out of Area enrolments

Applications from parents/guardians outside our local intake area (see local intake area map) are considered with the number being determined by the school’s capacity to accommodate further enrolments based on the following criteria:

First Priority – A child qualifying for a specialist program approved by the Director General for that year.

Second Priority –A child who has a sibling also enrolled at the school in the current year. Siblings can only be accepted when accommodation is available.

Third Priority – A child who does not have a sibling enrolled at the school in the current year; who lives nearest to Thornlie Senior High School with the distance being measured in a straight line on a horizontal plane.

(Intake area maps can be viewed in the intake area maps section below or www.det.wa.edu.au/schoolsonline/.)

As requests for out-of-area enrolments far exceed the number of places available, families from outside of local intake area are advised to first enrol their children at their local area school as unfortunately our capacity to accept these enrolments has been limited in recent years.
