2020 Tasmania Primary School Intake Area

This is a new entry for me and all Tasmania primary school Intake area map is available now. Tasmania has a specific intake area for all primary schools, however secondary schools do not. Secondary schools in Tasmania has what you call feeder primary schools instead. So, in reality, it does have an intake zone of a sort. I have not investigated in detail regarding Tasmania’s enrolment policy, so not 100 per cent sure about other enrolment criteria.

The most common name used by the Tasmania Department of Education is called “Intake Area” which refer to that students resides in a particular area are guaranteed position in specific schools. When discussed from the perspective of a particular school is often referred to as one of the following terms.

  • School Zone
  • School catchment

As usual contact the school in question or Department of Education for the final confirmation and you can also access the full Tasmania School Intake Area by following this link.

Tasmania School Zone

Yes, Tasmania is one of the six states in Australia, not just a tiny dot on the map that nobody notices it even existed. However put into perspective it is actually almost twice as large as Taiwan so it is a really big island. Education in Australia is the responsibility of the each state government, it is no different in case of Tasmania. Also, as usual, it has a different set of rules and regulation when it comes to the school zones for primary and secondary schools.

Primary schools in Tasmania has defined school zone which is referred as School Home Areas or catchment as well. After a rough look, primary schools all have a defined school home area and high school zone is defined by feeder schools. So if you attend the feeder primary school that you are zoned for the high school in question. This arrangement is different and unique in Australia from what I can see.
