Co-educational high schools

The NSW Government is committed to offering all families a co-educational high school option.

This means that every student in NSW will be guaranteed a place at a designated co-educational public high school by 2027.

To do this, we are examining a range of options including adjusting school intake areas for co-educational schools and working with schools to consider coeducational intakes.

We are planning for enrolments to open in 2024 for students to commence in Term 1, 2025 – with all NSW students to have guaranteed access by 2027

From 2025, families who currently live in single-sex local intake areas in parts of Sydney’s inner-west, south-west and west will be provided with a guaranteed option to enrol their children in a nearby co-educational public high school.

All students across NSW will have guaranteed access by 2027.

To make this happen, the NSW Government is adjusting school intake areas for co-educational schools, taking into account factors including enrolment trends, public transport access and the capacity of co-educational schools.

Our planning takes into consideration the capacity of co-ed schools. We will continue to monitor and supporting any changes that occur and all enrolment intake areas will be regularly reviewed to identify any need for change.
