High Performance Learning (HPL)

The success of our GATE students is echoed by the outcomes of our local entry High Performance Learning (HPL) Area. HPL sits alongside the GATE program, and responds to the needs of students who are identified as gifted and talented but who didnā€™t secure a place in our GATE classes.

HPL draws on the most appropriate best practice of our challenging academic curriculum. Like their GATE peers, HPL students are provided with a differentiated program, including extension, enrichment and acceleration in their core subjects (Mathematics, English, HASS and Science), and then join the rest of the community for their other subjects. This responsive curriculum allows teachers to shape course content, adjust learning processes and deliver distinct learning outcomes in a way that truly meets the particular needs of each of our high performing students.

Each year the HPL program accepts 64 new students from within our catchment area. Selection is completed by Shenton College using a local entry process. For more information, including application and enrolment timeline information, please visit the ā€œJoin Usā€ section of our website.
