As a result of rapidly growing enrolments, and limits to available classroom space, this school gives enrolment priority to students living in the enrolment zone. Enrolment can only be guaranteed to those students who meet any of the following criteria:-
- School Zoning Rights: Students living in the enrolment zone as defined by DECD. Click here for the zoning map
- Sibling Rights: Students who have a brother or sister currently attending Golden Grove High School will be enrolled if they apply for Golden Grove High School.
Year 7 - 8 Transition
Year 8 enrolment is carried out by the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) via public primary schools.
During Term 2 of the year your child is in Year 7 you should receive a 'Starting Secondary School' pack from your child's primary school (providing they attend a public primary school. If your child attends a private primary school, please contact your zoned high school during Term 1 of Year 7).
When you have completed the pack, please return it to the primary school if your child attends a public primary school. The school will forward it to the department. If they attend a private primary school, please forward the pack directly to DECD as indicated in the pack .
The department allocates students to high schools through the 7/8 Transition process. This is not decided by the high school. You will be notified of your allocated high school mid-August of the year your child is in Year 7.
Zoning information can be found here.
You can select Golden Grove High School as your first preference. However, the department fill our school's places with zoned and siblings of currently enrolled students first.
If there are places remaining they will allocate out of zone students. These students are determined by the department via a criteria basis which can be found here.
Please contact DECD 8226 1000 if you have queries regarding out of zone criteria.

Golden Grove High School has a Year 8 Special Entry Dance program which has an application, interview and audition process.
