Norwood Morialta High School has been experiencing a significant increase in enrolments during the past couple of years. The increased demand has been from a large growth in families moving into our local area. The department is working with the school to help determine an appropriate course of action to manage enrolments and will release further information shortly.

Late enrolment applications for 2021 from families living in our school zone will be reviewed depending on current availability.

Please see the Department’s Parent Update here.

Year 7 & Year 8 Entry in 2022

Prospective families will be able to apply for year 7 and year 8 entry in 2022 through the department’s state-wide transition process. This process generally starts in Term 2, 2021.

Information will be distributed to families by government primary schools at the start of term 2. This process is managed by the department and all families will be contacted by their enrolling school in early term 3.

Forms for students from non-government schools can be downloaded from the department’s website when available. See www.education.sa.gov.au/enrolment

Families from outside of the zone are still able to apply for enrolment at the school through the state-wide transition process, however priority will be given to local students and those who meet requirements for special circumstances.

As per Department policy future non-local siblings will not receive automatic entry to enrol at Norwood Morialta High School.
