Selective high schools provide an educationally enriched environment for highly achieving, academically gifted and talented students.
Agricultural high schools are selective high schools which emphasise the study of agriculture, with the residential sections giving some priority to isolated students.
Partially selective high schools have community-based classes as well as selective classes.
Vacancies may occur in Years 8 to 12 in selective high schools.
Entry to selective high schools in Years 8 to 12 does not depend on a centralised program as entry to Year 7 does. A common application package applies to all schools and is available from the selective high schools, Public Schools Network offices and on this website. A separate application form must be provided to each selective high school you choose, up to a maximum of four schools.
The period for application for entry in Years 8 to 12 in 2015 is now closed.
The application information, at the link on the right, outlines the Years 8 to 12 placement procedures for entry in 2015.
The application form for entry in 2015 is no longer available. The application form for entry in 2016 will be available in late June 2015.
Enquiries about courses and programs offered by specific selective high schools as well as enquiries about selection criteria such as testing should be addressed to the schools concerned.
