Year 7 Enrolment
As Farrer is a selective high school, the process for enrolment in Year 7 commences when your son is in Year 5.
To help you decide if Farrer is suitable for your son, you can register him to attend the Year 5 Experience Day in September, and the whole family can attend our Open Day in March each year. This will give you an opportunity to meet our dedicated staff, to tour our fantastic facilities and explore our curriculum.
For the period leading up to our Open Day, you can submit an Expression of Interest/Registration to attend. However, if it would be more convenient to take a personalised tour at another time, please complete the Book a Tour Form.
You can read about selective high schools here on the NSW Dept of Educations website. This link will provide information about how selective high school enrolment works, the selective schools test, and the application and selection process
