Upcoming 2021 Sydney And NSW Primary Schools Catchment Update

This is just a quick update for the upcoming update to 2021 Sydney and NSW primary school catchments. There are other changes that had been already implemented in NSW. If I get the time in the next few days, I will do an update as well. The plan is to do a proper full update around the beginning of next year.

Some we had reviewed previously already, but I think it is good to put them together and show your guys. I broke them down into areas, they are as following.

Northern Sydney Group, this cluster is caused by establishment of new Smalls Road Public School which result in reshuffling of neighboring schools catchment as well. Schools changed in this cluster are

  1. Smalls Road Public School
  2. Eastwood Public School
  3. Denistone East Public School
  4. Kent Rd Public School
  5. North Ryde Public School
  6. Truscott St Public School
  7. Ryde East Public School
  8. Ryde Public School
  9. Putney Public School
  10. Meadowbank Public School
  11. West Ryde Public School

The next cluster is north western cluster which is triggered due to completion of Northbourne Drive Public School. This result in changes in following neighbouring schools catchments.

  1. Northbourne Drive Public School
  2. Marsden Park Public School
  3. Riverstone Public School
  4. Schofields Public School
  5. Riverbank Public School
  6. Galungara Public School
  7. Hambledon Public School
  8. William Dean Public School

The third group is in south western Sydney which result from completion of Catherine Field Public School. Schools inovled in this cluster are as following

The last group of change is due to establishment of Estella Public School in Wagga Wagga. Schools with their catchments affected are as following

  1. Estella Public School
  2. North Wagga Public School
  3. Wagga Wagga Public School

I will incorporate everything into the full map for the 2021 school catchment update as well. I will also try to do the overview for secondary school changes for 2021 as well.

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

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. Hi, do you have any ideas that if any changes are to be made with the catchment area for Matthew Pearce Public School in the next couple of years (2022-2023).
    Thank you

    1. Hi Amy,

      I would guess it will be unlikely in the near future, as a new public school was only recently opened nearby and as a result of it, its catchment was shrunken dramatically. However, I would suggest you contact the school in question to see if they have information on this topic as changes to school catchment will normally go through a consultation process and is known ahead by the schools involved.
