Bomaderry High School Stage 4 extension (4E) program

Bomaderry High School’s motto ‘A Quality Experience’ aims to recognise the abilities and develop the potentials of all students.  It is for these reasons the 4E program (Stage 4 Extension classes) has been developed for high achieving and talented students in Years 7 and 8. 

The program aims to accelerate, enrich and extend students through design thinking projects and cross-curriculum priorities.  This unique two-year program also gives students the opportunity to participate in a variety of extra-curricular learning and leadership activities.

The 4E program is offered through a strict selection process at the end of Year 6.  Students will be tested on their Literacy, Numeracy, logic and reasoning; as well as their creative writing skills.  Students will be offered a place in the program based on their achievement within this process.
