Shenton GATE Program
At Shenton College we have a large catchment area, an inclusive ethos, and a curriculum that responds to the full range of learning types and abilities. For students outside our catchment, entry can only be obtained through successfully securing a place in our highly competitive Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program.
Entry into GATE is through an annual testing program managed by the Department of Education.
Shenton HPL Program
For entry into our High Performance Learning (HPL) program, students must reside within our catchment and 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). The test is conducted at Shenton College and lasts approximately 90 minutes. The HPL test will be administered in Term 3. Registrations for the test will be available at the end of Term 2 and will be communicated here.
- provision of the latest school report.
- provision of the latest NAPLAN results.
- where available (not required) external testing data such as Gifted and Talented testing results.
Further advice will be forwarded to students when they register to sit the HPL test.
