Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Entrance Programs

Online applications are available to parents from October 10 of the year their child is in Year 5 for Year 7 entry to the college. There may also be opportunities for other years available depending on vacancies in that year group. Applications close early February of the year prior to enrolment.  At this stage Gifted and Talented do not offer Year 8 applications.  Call Gifted and Talented for further information on 9264 4307.

Applications for 2019 open October 2017  and close February 2018. 

All Gifted and Talented Program applicants must sit the Academic Selective Entrance Test coordinated by the Department of Education regardless of what program they are applying for. The test includes individual assessments in the areas of mathematics and science, language, writing and non-verbal reasoning. Offers of placement cannot be considered if the GAT academic test is not completed.  A child with a learning disability may apply for a Selective Entrance Test Exemption (Arts Only) by requesting an application form from GAT.

Children are then required to participate in workshops, auditions and interviews. Shortlisted applicants are required to participate in an interview and to submit school reports.

Music applicants: An applicant for the Selective Arts Program in Music must nominate one or two musical instruments that they currently play. As an applicant cannot be selected for piano/keyboard in the Selective Arts Program in Music, an applicant who only plays piano will be tested on the piano but will be expected to learn a second instrument once accepted into the program. An applicant who currently plays piano and a second instrument will be tested on the second instrument. Singing (voice) is an instrument and can be nominated. Piano students can enter through the percussion stream.

See under Gifted and Talented programs for further information.
