Yes it's possible to enable the Windows Firewall for the Home/Work and Private networks using Group Policy.

The relevant GPO setting you need to confgure is in Computer ConfigurationPoliciesWindows SettingsWindows Firewall with Advanced Security > right click on Windows Firewall with Advanced Security  (circled in red below to avoid confusion) > Properties
Windows-Firewall-GPO.pngSet the Firewall state to On (recommended) for both the Private Profile and Public Profile tabs.
Enable-Firewall.pngMake sure you link the GPO to the OU with the computer objects in it as this is a computer level setting.
