Residency requirements for admission to a selective high school
1. Does my child need to be an Australian citizen to apply for a selective high school?
Generally candidates must be Australia citizens or holders of a visa granting permanent residency status in Australia.
2. What if I am a citizen of New Zealand living in New South Wales?
If your child is a citizen of New Zealand and resides in New South Wales, he or she may be eligible for selective high school entry.
3. What if your child is a permanent resident of New Zealand?
Permanent residents are not eligible for selective high school entry.
4. What if my child does not meet these residency requirements at the time of application, but expects to meet the requirements in the near future?
Your child is allowed to apply given they live in Australia. You will need to provide evidence that your child has met all the residency requirements before he or she is offered a place at a selective high school.
5. What sort of documents will I need to provide to evidence my child’s citizenship/residency status?
Successful applicants are required to show original documents, for example evidence of Australian citizenship, birth certificates and visas.
6. What if my child qualifies for entry on academic grounds but does not meet the citizenship/ residency requirements?
You can make an appeal for special consideration through the appeals process.
