List of selective high schools in New South Wales


List of selective high schools in New South Wales

This is a list of selective and agricultural high schools run by the Department of Education and Training. Entry to these schools is managed centrally by the department's Selective High School and Opportunity Class Placement Unit. Prospective students sit the Selective High Schools Test (typically in March of Year 6) and are allocated places at schools according to their profile mark, out of 300, which comprises both exam and school marks. Students may list up to four preferred schools.

A number of other government and non-government high schools also select their students based on merit; these include, for example Creative and performing arts high schools in New South Wales, and some private schools.

Recently[when?], there had been establishment of an extra 630 places for selective schools designated for Year 7 enrolment for 2010, located in South-West Sydney, Western Sydney and in regional NSW, as well as virtual selective schools in Western NSW. This has increased the number of places to 4152 and the number of selective schools to 46. [1]

Creative and performing arts high schools

The Department of Education and Training runs six creative and performing arts high schools. These schools aim to foster excellence in creative fields while teaching the same core syllabus as other state-run high schools. These schools are accorded an unusually high degree of autonomy by the department in selecting students and teaching staff. The schools boast specialised facilities and equipment and competition for places is acute.

This list also includes three Independent schools: The Australian International Performing Arts High School, Talent Development High School and the McDonald College.
