Feeder school model
When your child is ready to attend high school, their local high school is determined by the primary school they attended when they finished Year 6.
Each primary ‘feeder’ school has one or two ‘intake high schools’.
When your child finishes primary school, they are guaranteed a place at their primary school’s intake high school.
Find your local high school by looking for the name of your local primary school in the lists below, and checking the intake high school/s for that primary school.

Have your say on current feeder school arrangements
We are currently reviewing feeder school arrangements. This includes reviewing current feeder school arrangements. We are considering a range of potential options including:
- changes to current feeder school arrangements
- retaining current arrangements
- considering intake areas for high schools.
You can have your say by completing an online survey by the end of Term 3 2023.
We will also contact School Association Committees for primary schools in Greater Hobart, Launceston, Burnie and Devonport in Term 3 2023 to seek their views.
Can I choose which school I send my child to?
- We encourage families to enrol at their local ‘in-area’ school.
- You may seek to enrol your child in a government school that is not your local school, if that school has capacity to accept ‘out-of-area’ enrolments.
- You can find a list of schools that are at-capacity or nearing capacity on our Schools at Enrolment Capacity webpage.
- Schools use the Out-of-Area Enrolment Procedure (PDF, 516KB) to apply a consistent, equitable and transparent approach to assess out-of-area enrolment requests.
- If you would like to enrol your child as an out-of-area enrolment, and the school has capacity, they will provide you with an Expression of Interest form.
- Schools use the completed form and the evidence that you are required to provide, to prioritise enrolments according to standard criteria contained in the Out-of-Area Enrolment Procedure (PDF, 516KB).
- If the number of out-of-area enrolment applications exceeds the number of out-of-area enrolments the school can accommodate, the school will prioritise applications based on set criteria outlined in the Out-of-Area Enrolment Procedure.
Benefits of attending your local school
We asked families about the benefits of attending your local Tasmanian government school. They said that they valued:
- increased sense of connection to the local community.
- shorter travel times to and from school.
- living close to school, meaning students can walk or ride to school.
- ease for students to catch up with their friends outside school.
- the feeling of being close to home while they’re at school.
