Year 6 students are welcome to apply. Applications will be analysed and students will then sit the Admissions Test. It is an expectation that students demonstrate NAPLAN results in the upper two bands in the majority of components in order to proceed to the testing point: Year 3 and Year 5 NAPLAN reports should be submitted with the application.
Students who were not successful in gaining a place in Brilliant Futures Gold Coast, or who withdraw from the Program prior to Year 9, would be welcome to re-apply in Year 9 as per the general process for Queensland Academies admission.
