Students who wish to be considered for the Aspiring Scholars class.
The Aspiring Scholars Programme is supportive of Academically able students and their engagement with our Junior Curriculum. It is not a “gifted” programme but one with some academic acceleration for bright students that will be of benefit to gifted students as well. It is a programme that covers five junior curriculum classes within the same class grouping: Social Science, Science, Mathematics, English and Health/Physical Education.
Being elected for the Aspiring Scholars programme is not seen as a reward but as a response to an educational need. Where appropriate the programme provides curriculum compacting and encourages differentiated tasks.
Entry to our Aspiring Scholars Programme is determined by identification in the enrolment process, feedback from prior school, educational psychologist report (if evident), performance in entrance testing and prior scholastic performance.
Students not initially selected, who indicate through high performance the ability required, will be offered the opportunity to move into the programme in Year 10.
Please contact James Heneghan for further information. James is the Deputy Principal who oversees Curriculum. [email protected]
We give students a test designed to ensure your child is placed in classes appropriate for their current ability. This is only a starting point for their journey.
Friday 3rd November – Entrance testing held at Northcross
Saturday 11th November – Further Entrance Testing (For enrolments who attend Y8 elsewhere and those who attend Northcross Intermediate but were absent 3 Nov)
