Selective enrolments for Year 7

Baulkham Hills High School is a fully Selective High School and entry for Year 7 is based on the results of the Selective Schools Test conducted in March each year. All Year 6 students are invited to sit for the test at any of 130 centres located around the State. Applications to sit for the test are available from late October when the student is in Year 5. We do not hold open days or host tours of the school for individual families, only students who are offered a position will be invited to attend an Orientation Day.

Results are assessed by the High Performing Students Unit and applicants receive notification of outcomes by mail from the Department of Education. The school has no role in this selection process and cannot alter the outcome for any reason. Please refer all enquiries to the High Performing Students Unit:

If a student is already enrolled at a selective high school and wants to go to another, the parents must fill out an application form for entry and lodge it directly with the selective high school they want their child to attend and follow their application procedures.


Enrolment into Year 12 would, in the majority of circumstances, be an educational disadvantage for the student.  Therefore enrolment into Year 12 would be highly unlikely and would be at the discretion of the Principal.
