Selective high schools provide an educationally enriched environment for highly achieving, academically 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, school education group offices and on the internet. A separate application form must be provided to each selective high school you choose, up to a maximum of four schools.
The dates shown below relate to entry to Years 8 to 12 each year. This process is now completed for entry in 2014.
The information on this page outlines the Years 8 to 12 placement procedures but the details for entry in 2015 will be updated nearer to the time of application.
The application form for entry in 2015 will also be available for download nearer the time of application.
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.
