Learning Enrichment Achievement Program
Warnbro Community High School values excellence and is committed to providing academic enrichment opportunities for aspiring and talented students through our Learning Enrichment Achievement Program (LEAP).
The LEAP Program sees selected students in Years 7 through to Year 10 working with specialist teachers in the subject areas of Maths, English, Science, and HaSS to develop deeper understandings and ways of thinking about grade level curriculum content.
Students in the LEAP Program will be offered the opportunity to engage in a variety of extra-curricular opportunities that nuture their understanding of the real-world applications of curriculum content.
Criteria for entry into the LEAP Program
Entry into the LEAP Program is considered on a case-by-case basis, beginning with students who meet or exceed the following criteria:
- NAPLAN: above the national minimum standard in Reading, Writing and Numeracy
- Subject Grades: minimum B grade average across the areas of Maths, English, Science and HaSS
- Attendance: regular attendance of 90% or higher
- Attitude, Behaviour and Effort: ‘Seldom’ or ‘Never’ not indicated on student report.
Student performance within the LEAP Program is reviewed each semester. Movement into and out of the program will occur at semester intervals.
Students wishing to move into the program are encouraged to review the criteria for entry and, if applicable, submit an application to join the program by Week 7 of Term 2 (for Semester 2 entry) or Week 8 of Term 4 (for Semester 1 entry). Likewise, students within the program who do not maintain the expectations outlined above will be supported through a case management approach in consultation with parents on a semester basis.
Feeder Primary School LEAP Scholarships

The scholarships will cover the Year 7 school fees applicable to Maths, English, Science and HaSS, and the cost of any excursions, incursions or camps run as a part of the LEAP program in that year.
