Principal's message for prospective families

 

Dear Families,

Thank you for taking an interest in Hunter School of the Performing Arts and for considering submitting an audition application for your child. We enrol students from Year 3 to Year 11.

If you don’t already follow us on either Facebook or Instagram then I strongly encourage you to do so, as they are updated daily with information about our school and the activities and achievements of our students and staff.

In recent years HSPA has become a highly sought-after school resulting in demand for places significantly exceeding supply. Our enrolment and audition process are set out clearly and we want to give your child every chance at success but understand that some will be disappointed. We do have reserve lists and the opportunity to audition again.

For those who are fortunate enough to receive a place, they should treat their position at HSPA as an honour and a privilege. This is best demonstrated by living our school values of performing excellence, personal best, commitment and respect to ourselves and others. We are very much a community here at HSPA and work together to ‘perform at our best’.

Learning will always be our number one priority and we are committed to providing every one of our students with an outstanding education. Please consider our program fees before applying, so that you are aware of the commitments in enrolling. Follow this link for information on fees.

We trust that you will enjoy learning more about HSPA and the unique opportunities offered at the only fully selective performing arts school in the State. We encourage you to contact the school if you require further information or wish to have something clarified.

Compassionate Enrolments

(Outside of regular audition times)

From time to time, there are extenuating circumstances that may require an audition outside of our regular audition time frames. These can be requested for the following reasons:

  • Moving to the area
  • Wellbeing concerns
  • Changes in family circumstances
  • High potential newly discovered in students
  • Past students who would like to return

There is a separate process for mid-year considerations, and only taken into account if there is space in year groups. This process incurs a $250 application fee. Please call the Front office on 4952 3355 and speak to Natalie or Carianne.

We look forward to welcoming your families to our wonderful school. Please call our front office on 4952 3355 with any enquiries.

Kind regards

Tracey Breese
