A student who resides in the intake area of Lambton High School will be accepted provided he/she can prove permanent residency, any special needs can be met and a place is available.

Intake areas can be checked via the NSW Public School Finder.

Please complete a Preliminary Application for Enrolment and return it to administration with 100 point verification attached.



Students who cannot enter through local enrolment can apply for entry.

The applications of prospective students who do not reside in the intake area are considered on their merits.  Students are enrolled if it is considered to be in the best interests of the student and the school taking account of various factors.

The following factors are particularly kept in mind:

  • Commitment to studies (student profile, report comments)
  • Availability of subjects or combinations of subjects
  • Special interests and abilities (eg. leadership, cultural, environmental, sport programs)
  • The need to maintain a reasonable gender balance
  • Consideration will be made regarding siblings and attendance at a partner primary school


  • Students will be called to interview if a vacancy arises
  • Students are required to submit supporting documentation
  • Students who are successful will be issued with an Authority to Enrol
  • Students whose applications are not successful are notified and placed on a waiting list

The school has set an enrolment limit in consultation with the P&C Association based on our staffing and permanent accommodation. Places in the buffer (2 positions per class) are not to be offered to non-local students. The school enrolment capacity is set at 1,144 students based on the following guideline:
