Intention to apply for Year 7 entry to a selective high school in 2021

All Year 5 students have been issued with an intention to apply for Year 7 entry to a selective high school in 2021.

Selective high schools cater for academically high potential and gifted students who may otherwise be without sufficient classmates of their own academic standard. Selective schools help these students to learn by grouping them with students of similar ability, using specialised teaching methods and materials.

Selective high schools are unzoned so parents can apply regardless of where they live. 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 12 March 2020.

If you would like to have your child considered for Year 7 selective high school entry in 2021, you 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 at https://education.nsw.gov.au/public-schools/selective-high-schools-and-opportunity-classs/year-7

The application website opens at that link on Monday 8 October 2019 and closes at 10.00pm on 11 November 2019. You must apply before the closing date.

There are no paper application forms. If you do not have internet access, please see Mrs Monin for help to apply online.

You must submit only one application per student.

Please remember the tear-off slip that has been sent home is not an application and the school cannot apply on your behalf.
