Students can choose from a wide range of comprehensive schools across Sydney and New South Wales. Most schools are co-educational, with a small number of boys only or girls only schools. There are also a range of schools specialising in performing arts (e.g. music, dance), creative and visual arts (e.g. painting, drawing, sculpting), languages and sport.
Each school has a catchment area where students must live in to be eligible to enrol at the school. Students who will be living with a relative or have nominated a carer to be approved will need to enrol at a school that is local to the address for the relative or carer.
This page only displays NSW government schools available for secondary students enrolling in the International Student Program and Study Abroad program.
