Lindfield Public Stage 3 Extension Class
Students in Year 4 at Lindfield Public School are invited to apply for a place in our Stage 3 (Year 5/6) extension class for the following year. Information on placement in this class is forwarded to Year 4 parents in mid Term 3.
Please note that applications to access this class are only accepted from students currently enrolled at our school.
Gifted students are identified and catered for by differentiating the curriculum in the classroom and through enrichment groups K-6.
Gifted students are those whose potential is distinctly above average in one or more of the following areas of ability at school - intellectual, creative, social and physical.
Our gifted and talented program provides these students with learning opportunities on top of the normal curriculum.
Certain schools across NSW offer opportunity classes for high-achieving, academically-gifted students in Years 5 and 6. To be considered for enrolment, students must sit the opportunity class placement test in Year 4. The test is held between late July and early August and application packages must be made in May.
Selective high schools
Selective high schools provide a challenging environment where high-achieving, academically gifted students can reach their potential. To apply for a selective high school you need to complete an application in Year 5 and students must sit the selective high school placement test in Year 6 to be considered for enrolment.
Some selective high schools accept students for entry into Years 8-12. Applications are available in June and must be made directly to your preferred school.
