Year 7 EDGE Class

Year 7 EDGE Class  

The purpose of the EDGE 7 class is to provide an academically challenging program of learning. Students engage in critical and creative thinking activities and advanced learning pathways to enhance talent development. Students are supported to move from high potential to ultimately high achievement through deliberate adjustments to their learning program and groupings are made to meet the specific learning needs of students.

Applications for the 2025 Year 7 HGPE Class at Davidson High School are now open.

All students are eligible to apply for the class, although the class will be primarily determined through achievement in the domains of literacy and numeracy. A high level of motivation and commitment to their own learning are also required for student success in this class.  

Students will submit an application and supporting documentation which will be used to determine placement in the class. (See link at the bottom of this page)
