Gifted and Talented Selective Entrance Programs

When your child is in Year 6, you are able to apply for Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Entrance Programs.  Exact application opening and closing dates will be updated each year, as they become available.

Children with exceptional academic ability and creative talent thrive in our Gifted and Talented Programs. These unique academic, arts and languages programs provide a challenging curriculum designed to bring out the very best in students.

Available at 18 select secondary schools, including a fully selective academic school, an arts college, an online option and a regional school, children learn alongside like-minded peers and are taught by Teachers with expert skills and knowledge.

Your child can apply for these programs no matter where you live in Western Australia and, once selected, are guaranteed places at these schools. Successful country applicants may be eligible to board at City Beach Residential College and receive the Gifted and Talented Boarding Allowance.
