Commencing Year 7, 2021 Ferny Grove SHS will provide an opportunity for gifted Mathematics and Science students to be accelerated in their studies.
Our aim is to prepare students for the rigour of selected Senior Mathematics and Senior Science subjects, which will commence being studied in Year 10.
Successful completion of senior subjects by the end of Year 11 enables students to access University studies in their final year of school.
It would be advantageous for our gifted students to study both the accelerated Maths and the accelerated Science courses.
Experienced teachers will be allocated to the teaching of these subjects.
Like all distinctive programs, the commencement of these programs will be dependent on enrolment numbers.
From 2022, entrance is based on a submitted portfolio of work. This portfolio will be evaluated by a panel and may include:
- Samples of work
- Teacher/School letter of support
- ICAS/AMC Competition results
- WISC/WPSSI/SB5 Psychometric Test results
- School Reports
