School intake zones (catchment areas) for NSW government schools

Data Notes:

  • NSW public schools have defined local enrolment areas, meaning that every child is entitled to enrol in a particular school based on his or her residential address. Every public school reserves enough places within their school for students in their local enrolment area.

  • Disclaimer: Due to the evolving nature of school information and local enrolment areas, no responsibility can be taken by the NSW Department of Education, or any of its associated departments, if information is relied upon. For example, but not limited to, real estate purchases or rentals where the school intake zone data is used as a reference source.

  • School catchments areas can change for multiple reasons. These include schools opening and closing, and changes in population demographics, for example.

  • It is recommended that this dataset be used in conjunction with the Master Dataset to ensure a comprehensive understanding of all government school information.

  • School catchment data is updated nightly and accessible through the School Finder tool.
