Parents/Caregivers

Enrolments

Thank you for your interest in a student enrolment at Busselton Senior High School. We are an inclusive school that welcome and embrace new students. Together in partnership with parents/carers, we make our students education a priority.

Due to the high demand for places at our school the Department of Education have designated Busselton SHS as a local intake area school.

Students and their family must live within the school boundaries at the time the enrolment commences. Local Intake Schools have a designated geographical area from which enrolments are taken. Local Intake Schools must accept all applications from within their defined area, subject to residential qualifications. Students residing in dual Intake area may apply for either Busselton SHS or Cape Naturaliste College. All other applications from outside the designated area may apply for a “Cross Boundary Application”. View our Local Intake Map.

Enrolment Process

You can access an enrolment pack HERE or collect one from the office administration building at any time.

There are two application forms that must be filled out correctly, Part A and Part B. The Application for Enrolment is to be completed by the parent or legal guardian of the student and the legal name of the student must be used. These must be submitted along with relevant documentation:

  • Copy of your child’s birth certificate if born in Australia.
  • Copy of Citizenship Certificate or Australian passport if not born in Australia.
  • Proof of Address
  • Copy of Immunisation Certificate.
  • Family Court or other court orders.
  • Visa Details (if applicable) including Visa Grant Documentation.
  • Information relating to disability.
  • Last School Semester Report.
  • Notice of any suspensions and exclusions from previous schools. Children currently under suspension from a public school cannot be enrolled at another public school until the suspension period expires.

Once these documents have been submitted, an enrolment interview will be made with the relevant Associate Principal for the parent/caregiver and the prospective student.

Out Of Area Application – Cross Boundary Application

Students living outside the local intake area are welcome to apply for enrolment. The school will consider all applications and reply individually to each applicant. We suggest that you look at alternative arrangements at an early date so that you are aware of the options.
