Year 7 to High School

Year 7 to High School

Year 7 public school students will be taught in high school from term 1, 2022.  

This means that from 2022, year 6 will be the last year of primary school and year 7 will be the first year of high school.

Year 7 is already part of high school across the country so this move will bring South Australia in line with other states and territories, as well as other education systems in our state.

If your child is in year 5 or 6  at Thorndon Park Primary this year, they will graduate from primary school next year. Having two year levels graduate at the same time is a unique situation and we want to assure you that our students will experience a positive and successful transition from primary to high school. To ensure the experience is memorable, we are considering how leadership opportunities, seniors jumpers, graduation ceremonies and participation in activities that were historically ‘year 7’ events will include year 6 students. We will provide you with further information about our plans.
