Speculation Of Primary Catchment For The New High School At St Leonards Education Precinct

First let me say, the new site for the high school located in the new St Leonards Education Precinct is not definitive yet. I went over the information available and what I marked on the image below is what I think is the most likely site.

The new high school once established will most likely result in the shrinking of the catchment for Hunters Hill, Chatswood, and Cammeraygal High School. There will also be a likely ripple effect to the high schools further out as well. Willoughby Girls High School will not likely be impacted as its catchment is currently overlayed on top of existing schools.

The school is currently in the planning stage and we are not likely to see its establishment for another three to four years at the least.

Speculation Of High School Catchment For The New High School At Macquarie Park Education Precinct

The high school catchments around the newly proposed Macquarie Park Education Precinct are a bit of a mess. As you can see from the image below.

Again with the NSW Department of Education’s tendency to use major geographic features of using rivers, parks, and major roads to divide the school catchments, we can make some speculation on how the catchment will look like.

The new high school’s catchment will be at expense of Ryde Secondary College and Hunters Hill High School most likely. Epping Boys and Riverside Girls High School will also possibly be impacted, particularly given the recent moves by the NSW Department of Education that shift schools towards coed.

The majority of new apartments are between Epping Road and M2 Motorway, however, I would expect the new high school catchment will extend south past the Epping road as well. The catchment to the further west and south outside what is mentioned can also be impacted but if so will be to a lesser degree.

Changes to Sydney/NSW Secondary School Catchment for 2019

I went over the high school catchment zone for Sydney in the last few days. Following are the changes and update to 2019 Sydney/NSW secondary school catchment updates.

  • First and not the last I have corrected some spelling mistakes in the previous map which is my bad.
  • Glenwood high school expansion to the north pretty much doubled its current catchment. This overlaps with new The Ponds High School catchment. Looking at the information available, the overlapping shaded area should cease to exist in 2019 from what I understand. However, there is still overlapping area, so as usual, I recommend contacting the school in question for the final confirmation.
  • Riverstone High School covers the western part of The Ponds High School. My understanding is that same as Glenwood High School, the overlaid part of the catchment is meant to exclusively belong to The Ponds High School, however, the official information still indicates otherwise. So I would still highly recommend contacting the school in question as well in this case.
  • Wyndham College shows it covers what is part of The Ponds High School as well. The Ponds High School catchment is supposed to be exclusive from 1st of January 2019 so I would suggest contacting the school in question for final confirmation as above.
  • Chifley College Dunheved Campus expanded to the southeastern corner now covering most of the suburb of Whalan.
  • Beverly Hills Girls High School big expansion to the east it now covers most of Roseland and Beverly Hills.
  • Mini-expansion of Casula high school to the western tip covering a small patch of what previously was no man land. Plus small expansion to the southern edge taking over parts of what used to be part of Ingleburn High School, this is mostly no man’s land as well.
  • Ingleburn High School loses most of the northern part over the railway, most of those do not look to be residential, so catchment wise that is really not much of a change.
  • John Edmondson High School lost the southwestern corner west of Deepfields road to Mount Annan High School, relative to the existing its existing catchment, it is a fairly minor change.
  • Mount Annan High School huge expansion to the north of Camden valley way, this almost double the size of the existing catchment. The added part is not as populated compared to the existing zone, but this is still a very significant expansion. The expansion corresponds to the shrinking of
    Elizabeth Macarthur High School and
  • Elizabeth Macarthur High School catchment also shrinks very significantly, it lost part that is north-west of Camden Valley way and The northern road to Elderslie High School. It also lost the northeastern section over Oran park drive to Mount Annan High School.
  • As previously discussed Elderslie High School gained towards east all the way until The northern road.

The most common name used by the NSW Department of Education is called “catchment” which refer to that students resides in a particular area are guaranteed a 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 intake area
