Enrolments & School Tours

We are very proud of our school, which attracts students from all over inner north Melbourne. Thornbury High School was founded on strong academic grounding and has returned to those roots in recent years. THS has become a progressive, unique learning community, proud of its ability and dedicated to delivering an education that allows every student to achieve the best they can be.

"Thornbury High School is an outstanding place for my children. I couldn’t be more proud that my children are part of a great community. The staff are dedicated, hard working and fantastic people." Parent Survey Quote, 2015


Prospective Year 7 Students
Enrolling your child in a Victorian government secondary school is a straightforward process. You will need to fill out an enrolment form for Thornbury High School, including the following information:

  • Evidence of your child’s date of birth (if they were not born in Australia, a passport or travel document such as a visa).
  • Your contact, phone and address details, and that of any other parent, guardian and/or carer names and contact details of emergency contacts.
  • Health and welfare information.
  • Information about the language/s your child speaks and hears at home.

Once you have decided Thornbury High School is your preference for Year 7, an Application for Year 7 Placement form must be filled out and returned to the Year 6 Coordinator at your school.

The school encourages parents, especially at Year 7, to tour the school during the day and to pick up an information package.

Tours run in small groups each Tuesday (approx. 60 minutes in duration), and parents are encouraged to tour the school with their children. Please contact the school directly to arrange a tour on (03) 9480 4066.

All new students (and their parents) are expected to follow all school policies especially those regarding discipline, uniform, promotion and anti-harassment policies.

New students wishing to enrol at higher year levels must provide a current school report then attend an interview after which the Principal will make a decision about enrolment. At certain year levels there are waiting lists to enrol.

For enrolments at Years 8-12, contact the appropriate sub-school coordinator.
For enrolments at Year 7, contact the General Office on 9480 4066 and select Option 7 from the main switchboard.
