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 school finder includes schools registered to accept international students. Each school’s ability to accept international students at a given time is subject to capacity. This should not be considered an exhaustive list of schools that international students can attend, particularly for primary schools. There may be schools that are willing to accept international students that are not yet registered.
For students enrolling in the Temporary Residents Program, please use the school finder located on the NSW Department of Education website.
Please note that we will no longer be accepting online applications after 8 July 2018
