Application for Year 7 Selective High School 2019

Selective high schools cater for high achieving academically gifted students who may otherwise be without sufficient classmates at their own academic and social level. These schools help gifted and talented students to learn by grouping them with other gifted and talented students, teaching them in specialised ways and providing educational materials at the appropriate level.


Applications for selective high school placement are considered mainly on the basis of the Selective High School Placement Test results and school assessment scores. The Selective High School Placement Test will be held on Thursday 15 March 2018.


If you would like to have your child considered for Year 7 selective high school entry in 2019, you need to apply soon. You will need to apply on the internet using a valid email address (not the student's email address).


Detailed instructions on how to apply online will be available from 10 October 2017 in a printed application information  booklet  and  at classes/year-7.


The application website opens at opportunity-classes/year-7 on 10 October 2017 and closes on 13 November 2017.  You must apply before the closing date.    


There are no paper application forms. If you do not have internet access, you could apply at a public library. If you have a disability that prevents you from using a computer, you can contact the Unit for assistance after  10 October 2017.


You must submit only ONE application for each student. There is a notice to your primary school for you to complete, to notify us of your intention to apply, this is located at our school office.
