An academically talented Year 7 class operates within the school. Students are placed into this class on the basis of the information received from family nomination, the primary feeder school and external testing.
A number of students participate in Aurora College, a virtual selective school which operates throughout the Western Region.
At Denison College we have an ongoing commitment to meet the needs of all students. The High Potential and Gifted Education Classes at each campus cater for those students who show exceptional ability in the intellectual and creative domains, as well as those who have the self-motivation and capacity for high level individual and group project work.
We also offer targeted enrichment programs throughout the year that extend our students in the intellectual, creative, social-emotional and physical domains of learning. These opportunities are designed to supplement the work being done across the key learning areas.
