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 2018 closed on 16 November 2016. The Selective High School Placement Test for entry to Year 7 in 2018 will be held on 9 March 2017.

Students 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 Selective High Schools Placement test is conducted in March of the year following the year of application. 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 (including entry into Year 7 in 2019)  go to: Selective High Schools: Year 7 placement.
