How Can I Enrol?

To be eligible for enrolment in our school, students must also be enrolled in a NSW Government school which is classified as a rural and remote school.

Year 7

Applications for entry into Year 7 in 2021 opened on 8 October 2019 and close on 11 November 2019. The Selective High School Placement Test for entry to Year 7 in 2021 will be held on 12 March 2020.

Students seeking enrolment in Year 7 are considered for entry on the basis of academic merit, which is determined by the students’ performance on the school curriculum and in the Selective High Schools Placement Test.

The test consists of reading writing, mathematics and general ability components.

Where students qualify to attend a fulltime local selective school and our school, the offer made to successful students will be determined by the order in which parents list their choices.

For further information, go to: Selective High Schools: Year 7 placement.
