The Department for Education policy, as applying to state zoned schools and to our Capacity Management Plan (CMP) governs enrolment at Henley High School.
Year 8: The transition from primary to secondary school is managed by the Department for Education during the student's final year in primary school. Students attending a public primary school will receive a starting secondary school (transition) pack from their school. Private school families can request a pack by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org

Enrolment Year 9-12: Entry is managed by Henley High School in collaboration with our Partnership Director. We are currently subject to enrolment restraints. This has resulted in a capacity management plan (CMP) which provides limitations on which and how many students we can accommodate.
The first restriction is that they must reside in zone and evidence must be provided to that effect.
The second is that a vacancy at the time of applying for a position is available. A vacancy means that we are able to provide a course for an applicant in the compulsory subjects that does not exceed the designated class room quota.
Where no vacancies exist for students living in the school zone, we will refer the enrolment to other neighbouring schools. If requested, Henley High School will place the in-zone applicant on our school enrolment register and will notify families if an appropriate vacancy occurs.

Sports Academy: The Henley Sports Academy is a specialist program open to all applicants – in zone and out. Applications for Year 8, open and close Term 1, the year prior to starting high school. Other application types are considered throughout the year. For specific timelines, application forms and details visit our website at: http://www.henleyhs.sa.edu.au/section/programs/henley-sports-academy
Students do not need to live in the zone to apply for the Sports Academy.
International Student Program (ISP)
International students are recruited and their application is processed by International Education Services (IES). These students will hold a student visa as defined by the Department of Home Affairs. Due to our CMP, international student numbers are managed and enrolments focused on Years 11 and 12.
