Entry to Year 7 in 2018

The High Performing Students Unit sent selective high school placement outcomes overnight on Friday 30 June.

If you have received an offer of placement and you send your response, we will acknowledge it as soon as we process each response form . Please do not send your response again as duplication interferes with our work. Please be assured that we will not withdraw any offers if we don't get a response at this stage. If your fax or email does not get through we will send you a reminder email.

Check the Outcome page for further information.

It is now too late to submit appeals against the placement outcome. Appeals were due to the primary school principal on 24 July 2017.

Go to frequently asked questions about marks for further information about the marks letters sent with placement outcomes. Find more information about the scoring process.

In early August the progress of reserve lists will be published every few days when there is significant movement. If your child's reserve position is reached the Unit will contact you.
