Entry into Year 7 is through the Selective School Test, which is organised by the Selective Schools Unit (SSU).

All applications are handled by the Selective Schools Unit.

All information regarding Year 7 Enrolment and the Selective School Test is available on the Selective Schools Unit website:

Applications for Year 7 usually open in late October when most students are in Year 5 and close in mid- November.

The state-wide Selective School Test is normally held in March of the following year.

Years 8 - 12

There is no test or application fee for entry into Years 8-12 at Sydney Girls High School.

Applications are submitted directly to the school(s) where enrolment is sought.

Selections are based upon the quality of applications and the supporting material provided by applicants.

In some cases an interview may also be requested by the school.

Application forms for entry are usually available in late June of the preceding year and the closing date is usually late July.

Application forms and deadlines for entries are also available from the Selective Schools Unit (SSU) website:
