Enrolling at Westlake

Domestic Enrolments for 2020


2020 application for enrolment for out-of-zone students closed at 4pm on Wednesday 4 September and we are no longer accepting applications from out-of-zone students. If you are unsure whether you live in-zone or out-of-zone, please check the zoning map.

Please note that the application link below is for in-zone applicants only, and any out-of-zone applications for 2020 received using the link after 4pm on Wednesday 4 September will not be accepted.

Out-of-zone – priority order

Each year the Board of Trustees determines the number of places likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the school zone. Once in-zone enrolment numbers are confirmed, out-of-zone applications are prioritised and drawn by ballot according to the priority list.  The ballot was held on Wednesday 11 September 2019, and out-of-zone applicants were notified shortly thereafter.

  • First Priority This priority is not applicable as the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education
  • Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students
  • Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students
  • Fourth Priority will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school
  • Fifth Priority will be given to applicants who are children of Board employees
  • Sixth Priority will be given to all other applicants


Applications are still being accepted for in-zone students for 2020. Students who live in the Westlake Girls High School zone (see map below) may enrol at the school as of right, provided:

  • They are entitled to a state education
  • They live in-zone as their main residence, with a parent or legal guardian

Applicants must first complete the Online Enrolment Form and submit the requested documentation. Once the school is satisfied that the enrolment criteria have been met, the student and parent/caregiver will be invited by email to book an Enrolment Interview with senior staff.

You will receive the email from the school approximately 7 days after you have submitted your Online Enrolment Form.

Please note that “living in the school zone” means a student has her main residence in the school zone. The school will not accept the temporary transference of guardianship to someone living in-zone as evidence that a student is living in zone.
