For entry into our High Performance Learning (HPL) program, students must reside within our catchment.

Students are selected for HPL through a local entry process which includes:

  • sitting a common selection test at the College (or if interstate or overseas, by arrangement).  This year the selection test will be held on the morning of Saturday, May 28, in the College Gym.  Students will be at Shenton on the test day for a scheduled 90 minutes.  This year will be a paper test – NOT online.  A sitting fee of $20 is required.  Registrations for the Test can be done HERE.
  • Provision of the latest school report.
  • Provision of the latest NAPLAN results.
  • Where available (not required) external testing data such as DET GATE testing results.

Further advice on the submission of the selection portfolio will be forwarded to students sitting the HPL test.
