Crestwood High School Enrolment Policy

Available here is the current Crestwood High School Enrolment Policy

Prospective Year 7 students

  • Year 6 students who are enrolled in a public school should apply through their school. Students in private schools should apply directly to the school office.
  • An Orientation Day is usually held in December for all those prospective Year 7 students who have been offered a place. On this day uniform can be purchased and fees paid.
  • A copy of the New Student Information Handbook is available

Offers of enrolment will generally be made in late Term 2.

Enrolments into other years

Due to the high demand for places at Crestwood High School for students who live in the local drawing area, there are few places for non local students.

The correct procedure for all other enrolments is to apply to the school directly. An appointment will be made with a member of the senior executive to interview the prospective student and review any documentation from their previous school.

If you are successful in obtaining an interview, you must bring both a copy and the originals of all documents listed in the enrolment policy.

If the application is successful, enrolment forms and support documentation will be provided and a starting date set.

All enrolment applications must be accompanied by proof of residence. This must include a proof of ownership of the property or a signed rental lease through a registered real estate agent. In some circumstances the school may require the provision of one or more statutory declarations confirming the residential address. 

Enrolments may be withdrawn if it is subsequently found that false information has been given.

Support Unit Enrolments

Enrolments in the Support Unit are determined by the Department of Education and Training and applications should be made through the Nirimba Office (Phone 9208 7611).

International Student Program

Crestwood High School welcomes both international students and exchange students from various countries, to study for the Higher School Certificate (HSC). International students help to enrich the cultural mix with our local, comprehensive, and co-educational public school.

Some more reasons international students choose Crestwood High School include:

  • Crestwood High School embraces the opportunity for international students and local students to exchange cultural experiences.
  • Crestwood High School international students are supported by an International Student Liaison Officer and an International Student Co-ordinator (Ms Wright).
  • the International Student Liaison Officer monitors the welfare, attendance and academic performance of all international students.
  • students are provided with support and advice. Our Deputy Principal, Tania Wright, is highly involved in the international students program at Crestwood High School. 

For further information about studying as an international student, go to the DE International Education page.

High Potential Gifted Education

Due to the updated Department of Education enrolment policy, non-local students will no longer be able to apply for enrolment at Crestwood High School through the High Potential Gifted Education program.

The Crestwood High School High Potential Gifted Education program will continue as an enrichment program for those students who are already enroled at the school. Access to this program will be via application which will include a selection test and submission of a portfolio.
