'A Program of High Expectations and High Achievements'

The SELP is a selective entry program developed to address the special learning needs of students who demonstrate high levels of task commitment and high levels of achievement.  Through the combination of a specially designed Curriculum, well-practiced teaching expertise, and a developed culture of high expectations, students are stimulated, challenged and motivated towards even higher levels of achievement.

Werribee Secondary College operates the only TAASS, (The Academy of Accredited SEAL Schools), accredited Select Entry Program in the Wyndham Region. The SELP has been operating since 1997 at Werribee Secondary College.

Students in the Program have attained outstanding results and last year’s summary of results can be seen in the table below.

Year 7

Most students enter the Program at Year 7. In order to do so they must sit for the Entrance Examination whilst still in Year 6. Enrolment into the program is determined by performance on these tests. The main testing session is conducted in May.

Other Year Levels

A small number of positions are available at other year levels as a result of family movement. Entry into these places is subject to a satisfactory performance on the Entrance Examination. This exam takes place in Mid-September . Applications open Early August – contact the College.


The SELP curriculum allows students to work at a pace, more in keeping with their academic capacities. Students are extended to work at higher thought process levels, and higher academic performance levels. In this way their intellectual development is stimulated whilst their social and emotional development is supported by a peer group of similarly motivated and achieving students.

All students stay together in one class for all of their subjects in Years 7 & 8. In Years 9 & 10 they are able to select several elective subjects, which they undertake with other students from their year level. Students must meet the set academic requirements at each year level.

All students who enter the Program exhibit above average ability in Mathematics. The extent to which they excel in Mathematics will influence the curriculum pathway which each student follows.
