Welcome to Cammeraygal High School
NSW public schools have specific local enrolment areas. These areas are determined by the Department of Education. Students enrol in public schools based on their home address.
Applications for enrolment from out-of-area students will be considered when vacancies exist. Within the enrolment ceiling, a buffer will be maintained in each year group to accommodate local students arriving throughout the year. Places in the buffer will not be offered to non-local students.

In area applicants will receive an enrolment package in early June. These will need to be completed and returned to Cammeraygal HS, along with supporting documentation, by the specified date.
Out of Area applicants will receive an information letter by mid Term 2. All out of area applications are assessed by a panel which will consider and make recommendations on all non-local enrolment applications.
Your application will be reviewed by the placement panel taking into account the following selection criteria (not listed in a priority order):
- primary school performance reflecting the school's values related to:
- learning focus; and
- student welfare or compassionate circumstances including:
- proximity and access to the school;
- siblings already enrolled at the school;
- medical reasons; and / or
- safety and supervision of the student before and after school;
- extra-curricular interests and abilities; and
- the structure and organisation of the school.
Your application will be reviewed and processed as a matter of priority with equal weighting being given to each of the criteria. To assist in this process you will be asked to supply a cover letter addressing the criteria listed above; including special achievements (such as awards, ICAS results) and extracurricular activities; as well as copies of Year 5 NAPLAN results, most recent school report and any relevant documentation supporting welfare or compassionate circumstances,
Year 7 first round offers are made in June. Parents / Caregivers who have returned requested information as per above will be placed on a wait list. The size of the wait list will reflect realistic expectations of potential vacancies and no wait list will be maintained if there is not a realistic potential for vacancies. The wait list will remain current until the end of the year.
All current 7-12
Please apply via the online portal. Cammeraygal High schools' enrolments officer will contact you and request student’s reports and other revelant documents including 100 point proof of address. All students with their parents will be interviewed to assess appropriate class placement and subject selection. Selection of electives will be subject to availability.
Any student who is not an Australian or New Zealand citizen must have an appropriate residency visa, or approval to enrol in accordance with the conditions set down by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. See Temporary visas and international students for further information.
Any student welfare, learning support or health issues (eg anaphylaxis, diabetes) must be addressed at the time of enrolment. The Principal for all applicants will send a Request for Information form to the student’s previous school to check on any history of violent behaviour or learning support needs. The Principal will contact non-government schools directly to check on any such history. If the previous school is in another State, the appropriate forms will be sent and must be returned before enrolment can be finalised. If necessary, a Risk Management Plan will be prepared and discussed at the first available staff meeting, before enrolment is finalised.
All forms must be returned to the School Administration Office and data entered before a timetable can be generated. In general, the enrolment process will require 2-3 days for completion (dependent on prompt return of information by previous schools).
