The Selective Schools Exam Registrations

Extension to Selective Schools Registrations for BOARDERS ONLY

Students in Year 5 who are considering boarding at Farrer have now been provided with a special extension to register for the Selective Schools Entrance Exam. This is great news as it means Year 5 students may be given an early offer to boarding in Term 1, Year 6 after submitting an application and attending an interview.

This recent announcement from the NSW Minister for Education and Early Learning, means families who are considering boarding for their son will know earlier and can now plan for the year ahead. Priority placement for siblings is also being considered.

Keep them close and keep them in the country! There's no need to send your boys to the city. 

Farrer is Australia's only selective agriculturally based high school that offers a broad curriculum and a life changing experience for your son. A place where he will learn the value of teamwork, camaraderie, and experience the rewards of effort and contribution.

Register your son for boarding at Farrer today. https://shsoc.education.nsw.gov.au/

Applications are now closed for selective high school exam for day students in Year 7 in 2024.

Once you have registered your son we encourage you to visit the selective schools website as it contains useful information, including parent notification dates, and sample test papers, which will help prepare your son for the exam.
