Sydenham-Hillside Primary School accepts enrolments for students that live in our school zone. You can find out if your home address is in our school zone by typing your address into the box at this website Find my school

Sydenham-Hillside Primary School only accepts enrolments for prep students in the year before they start school. Sydenham-Hillside Primary School does not have a waiting list and does not accept enrolment for students younger than 4 years of age.

If you are interested in enrolling in our school but do not live in our school zone you can request an enrolment but we cannot confirm the enrolment until after we have enrolled all students that live in our zone first and have determined whether our school has capacity.

If you would like to enrol your child at Sydenham-Hillside Primary School you may do so by visiting the administration office at either campus, or alternatively by phoning Sydenham Campus on 9361 5300 or Hillside Campus on 9361 5400 to book a school tour.

Enrolment forms must be completed, signed and returned to our office with the following original documents which will be copied by the School:

  • Proof of residential location (eg Rates notice, utilities notice)
  • Your child's Birth Certificate
  • Immunisation Certificate (showing full immunisation to age 5) obtained from Medicare
  • Passport, if born overseas

This is a Department of Education and Training requirement. Enrolment forms will not be accepted without birth details.


For families arriving from overseas, school entry is determined by the Visa Subclass Number on your child's Passport. Students unable to enrol directly into the School can enrol via the International Education Division. Please contact them on 03 9637 2990, by email on international@edumail.vic.gov.au or visit their website on www.study.vic.gov.au for further information.
