Melbourne High School is an academic Selective Entry State Government school for boys only commencing at Year 9.  Students must be Australian or New Zealand citizens, either by birth or Australian citizenship, or a holder of a qualifying residency visa at the time of application.  Melbourne High School cannot enrol international or temporary students. 


Students wishing to enter Year 9 are required to sit the entrance examination which is conducted by the Selective Entry Unit of the Department of Education and Training.  Boys, who are in their second year of secondary schooling, (generally Year 8) are eligible to apply to sit the entrance examination.


The entrance exam applies to the four selective entry Schools:  Melbourne High School (boys only), The Mac. Robertson Girls’ High School (girls only), Nossal High School in Berwick and the Suzanne Cory High School in Werribee (both coeducational).  Application is made to sit the entrance examination one year in advance of the student attending the school.  Applications to sit the entrance examination open in March and close in early May.  Applications are made online by parents/guardians using the Selective Entry Schools’ website.


An online information book and practice test are available on the Selective Entry School’s website.  


The entrance examination takes place on Melbourne in July each year. Results are issued in September and places are offered to commence in year 9 at Melbourne High School at the start of the next school year.  Students are selected to attend a selective entry school based on their score in the entrance examination.  Selective entry schools are state-wide providers, meaning there are no zoning policies and students can live anywhere in the greater Melbourne area.


The study of a language is compulsory for Years 9 and 10 students.  Students choose one language from the four languages offered at Melbourne High School, which are French, German, Japanese or Indonesian. All languages can be studied through to VCE level.  Students in Year 9 are not permitted to study any subjects at VCE level.  This includes a language that the student studies at an external language provider, such as local language schools, Virtual School Victoria or the Victorian School of Languages.


Parent contributions are currently around $1,800.00 per year, dependent upon the student’s choice of elective subjects and co-curricular activities.  Melbourne High School has its own outdoor education centre in Millgrove, near the Warburton Mountain ranges.  Students in Years 9 and 10 spend one week at Millgrove; the cost of this camp is included in the parent contributions.


There are three important transition dates for students who are offered a place at our School:

•             the MHS Welcome Day in October.  Students and parents/guardian(s) attend to confirm enrolment

•             the Year 9 student Orientation day in early December.  For students only. 

•             the first day of school for new Year 9 students - late January


Melbourne High School has one Intake per year.  Places cannot be held for students who are unable to commence on the first day of the school year.
