Changes to Sydney public school catchment in 2019

I have been working on this for the last three weeks and have completed it yesterday. Following are a list of changes in public/primary school catchments in Sydney/NSW. There are a lot of changes actually this year compare the last few.

  • Roseville Public School lost the southeastern corner of the previous catchment that is east of the High Street is given to the Castlecove Public School.
  • Willoughby Public School lost the northeastern corner and that is given to Castlecove Public School as well.
  • New school in Parramatta called O’Connel Street Public School has established and opened. It will start to take on kindergarten students in the year 2019. It will be open to kindergarten to year 6 from 2020. It will be taken over part of nearby school’s catchment in particular Parramatta and Westmead Public School.
  • As above, Parramatta Public School will lose the northern half of the current catchment from the year 2019 to 2020.
  • Westmead Public School catchment will also shrink from the year 2019 to 2020 and basically lose everything north of the railway and those become part of the new O’Connel Street Public School.
  • Crestwood public school catchment got very minor shrinkage.
  • Matthew Pearce Public School major shrink of northern part and those are now part of the new Bella Vista Public School.
  • Bella Vista Public School has opened and taken over the northern part of the Matthew Pearce Public School and the southwestern part of what was previously Kellyville Public School.
  • Kellyville Public School’s southern half become part of the new Bella Vista Public School’s catchment.
  • Haberfield Public School major enlarge of the catchment to the south of the Parramatta road at the expense of the Ashfield Public School. Minor loss on the northern section which was given to the Dobroyd Point Public School.
  • Again as previously said Ashfield Public School lost of northern half to Haberfield public school.
  • Ironbark Ridge Public School’s eastern half that is east of the Smalls Creek is now the catchment of the new North Kellyville Public School.
  • Parklea Public School minor shrink on the southern border with Caddies Creek Public School absorbing those changes. This could be a mistake on my part last time around as the changes are very minor.

As usual contact the school in question or Department of Education for the final confirmation and you can also access the full NSW and Sydney Public School Catchment Map by following this link.

  1. Hello there,
    Will you be revising over the Botany area?
    Perhaps extending it further out due to the increase of new homes recently built?

    1. Hi Tanya,

      I think the entire Botany is covered already other than the airport which does not contain any residential area to my understanding. I will double check the area to make sure.

  2. Will you be extending matthew pearce catchment to cover more areas which fall under winston hills today

    1. Hi Tina,

      Matthew Pearce catchment is not likely to expand as it is one of the most in-demand public school in the state the enrolment pressure from it resulting in the zone not likely expand in the near future in my opinion.

  3. Hello there, is the catchment map for Matthew Pearce Public School up to date with the 2019 changes? thank you

    1. Hi Vimal,

      Westmead public school zone will shrink fully next year and no longer have any overlap with the new O’Connel Street Public School. Essentially it will cover any area north of the railway next year.

  4. Will catchment to Randwick Public School and Rainbow St Public School change in the near future, given the new development?

    1. Hi Anne,

      Difficult to say, but given that the NSW Department of Education is implementing population cap to balance out the distribution of students between schools and both Randwick and Rainbow St Public school has the capacity to spare so it suggests their zone will not shrink in the near future. I would guess the zones will stay the same or slightly expanding.
