Years 8 to 12 (and mid-year Year 7)

Glenunga International High School operates under a Capacity Management Plan. This is a legal notice established by the Minister for Education to ensure the number of enrolments at our school remains at a safe level. Please read the following information carefully.


Step 1: Do you live in the zone?

No, I don’t.

We are unable to accept applications from families living outside of the zone. This includes families who:

  • have students enrolled at Glenunga and move out of the zone – there are no ‘sibling rights’.
  • currently live interstate or overseas and are planning to move into the zone.
  • own a rental property in the zone but live elsewhere.
  • have relatives who live in the zone. A student’s primary carer(s) must live in the zone, not the relatives.

Next step: You need to approach another local school for enrolment. You can use this tool to help you.


Limited places are available for Year 10 students out of zone wishing to apply for entry into the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in Year 11. Please see International Baccalaureate page for more details.

Yes, I do.

Under the Capacity Management Plan, living or moving into the zone does not provide automatic entry or a guaranteed place.

  • We cannot fast-track, guarantee places, or make exceptions based on:
    • a family’s personal extenuating circumstances.
    • your connections to the school (eg ex-scholar, staff).
    • your plans to purchase or rent property in the zone in the future.
    • you removing your student from another school before securing a place at Glenunga.
  • You are strongly encouraged to keep your student enrolled at their current school or enquire at neighbouring schools.
  • If you are eligible for a place and one is not available, you can be added to a waitlist.
  • We cannot provide enrolment guarantees if you are considering moving into the zone.

Next step: Check you meet the in-zone requirements.

Step 2: In-zone requirements

1. 12 months residence: You must live in the zone for 12 months minimum before submitting a Registration of Interest.

  • For less than 12 months, you can submit a Registration of Interest, however those with 12+ months residency will be prioritised.
  • If you are renting, your lease must be for a minimum of 12 months from the date your student is enrolled.
  • If you have just moved into the zone, you will need to approach another school.

2. Evidence: You must provide evidence that you actively live in the zone, including but not limited to: a driver’s licence /proof of age card with your current residential address, electoral registration, tenancy agreement and bond receipt, gas or electricity bills, council rates, etc. Water rates are not accepted.

These documents are outlined in the Registration of Interest form and we may request further documentation to support your application.

Next step: If you live in the zone, have done so for 12 months or more and have all the documentation, you can submit your request for consideration (which will be subject to space availability).

Step 3: Registration of Interest Process

1. Email us at for a Registration of Interest form. This is an enquiry only, it does not guarantee enrolment.

2. Gather all required documents. We can only review or discuss your situation once all documents are submitted. We are unable to follow you up for outstanding documents.

3. Submit the form and all documents to marked “Enrolment Registration of Interest” or you can hand your papers in at the Reception desk between 8am and 4pm.

4. Acknowledgement. If you have submitted all the required documents, we will send an acknowledgement of receipt within 3 school days. If documents or information is missing, we are unable to respond to your submission.

Next step: Please be patient while we review your information. Emailing or calling to check on the status of your submission takes the very limited resources away from the reviewing process.

Step 4: Review and Response

Review. We will review your form and documents within two weeks. If your form is incomplete or missing documents, it cannot considered.

Response. We will contact you to advise of the outcome, which may include being placed on a waitlist. If you are placed on a waitlist, we will only contact you if a place becomes available.
