HPS Local Intake Area

Local Intake Area Map

Highgate Primary School is a local intake school.

The Principal will enrol an eligible child whose usual place of residence is in the local intake area for the school (Pre Primary to Year 6).

Please Note: Kindergarten is not compulsory.  If you are in the local intake area and the school is at its maximum capacity of enrolled Kindergarten students, your child will be placed on a waitlist and you will be notified when a place becomes available.

The school will enrol students under the following priorities (Pre Primary to Year 6):

  1. All children whose usual place of residence is located within the local intake area for Highgate Primary School will be offered an enrolment.

If, and only if, there is spare capacity:

  1. Students who live outside the local intake area, and who have siblings currently enrolled at the school.
  2. Further places will be allocated based on nearest to the school basis.

This map is provided as a guide. Please note that in some cases only one side of the street falls within the boundary. Further clarification of the boundary should be made to Highgate Primary School 9328 4201.

Note
The local-intake area maps are based on a written description of the local-intake area (LIA) for the school as published in the WA Government Gazette.  Although the map closely represents the LIA description, for some houses near the boundary (especially on street corners), it may be necessary to refer to the written description.  The street address of a residence is used to determine whether that dwelling is inside a particular LIA.  While local-intake areas for most schools do not change from year to year, changes may be made to local-intake areas as required.  Such changes are published in the WA Government Gazette and subsequently the local-intake area map will be updated.
