Standard entry levels to the School for day boys from 2019 will be Pre-Primary, Years 4 and 7. Offers of places are made up to two years in advance for Pre-Primary and one year in advance for Year 4. The entry level for boarders and Year 7s with a family connection are made three years in advance. For day students entering Year 7 an academic entrance exam is held early in Year 5.
Our Junior School has recently completed an exciting redevelopment and our inaugural Pre-Primary classes commenced in 2019. Please click here to read more about the Junior School Redevelopment.
Entry into Pre-Primary is determined by the number of days from the date of birth to the date of registration. Priority is given to siblings of current Hale students and sons/grandsons of Old Haleians.
Entry into Year 4 is determined by an academic entrance test, which is written in mid-Year 3. Places are offered in order of merit based on the results of the test. The sighting of recent school reports and NAPLAN results are requested and can form a component of this academic assessment.
Year 7 entry for boys who are siblings of current students, sons or grandsons of Old Haleians, or boarders is granted provided the boy has been registered three years prior to the date of entry and that the payment of the Endowment Fee is made when requested (three years prior to entry). Entry for boarders is also subject to the availability of beds at the registered year level. The preferred entry into boarding is Year 7 at the beginning of Middle School, however other entry years will be considered on request. Year 7 entry for boys without the above affiliation is determined by an academic entrance examination held in Term 1 of Year 5.
Vacancies may occur from time to time at other levels in the school, including limited places in the Senior School at Years 9, 10 and 11. Boarding entry is also available at Year 9. Entry at these levels is dependent on availability of places, the sighting of previous school reports and an interview with the Deputy Headmaster or Head of Senior School.
