Pittsworth State High School recognises as its prime obligation the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school’s catchment area.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth, Pittsworth State High School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future unless action is taken to manage enrolments. The Principal must restrict the enrolment of out-of-catchment students to ensure in-catchment students can enrol at their local state school without requiring additional facilities.
Student enrolment capacity
Pittsworth State High School has a maximum student enrolment capacity of 611 students.
Local catchment area
A school's local catchment area is the defined geographical area from which the school is to have its core intake of students.

Pittsworth State High School is adjacent to Millmerran State School which only provides schooling from Prep to Year 10. Therefore, Pittsworth State High School provides Year 11–12 to a wider catchment area. This means that the school has 2 different catchment areas – i.e. 1 for junior secondary (for Years 7–10 or Years 8–10) and another for senior secondary (Years 11–12).
Enrolment policy and procedure
The enrolment policy includes further information about in-catchment and out-of-catchment enrolments, acceptance and assessment processes, as well as any associated fees and decisions on enrolments.
