HSC Results


In addition to leading the school through their service and leadership roles and actively participating in the school’s co-curricular program, Year Twelve 2017 worked hard to maximise their results and were well rewarded with excellent marks in their HSC studies.  Their achievements have resulted in the School being ranked 87 in the Sydney Morning Herald’s ranking of NSW Schools for 2017.

We also take this opportunity to thank all of our staff for their commitment and support for the delivery of the Year Twelve program. We also thank the parents and families who have supported our Year Twelve students throughout their schooling.

As a group they have out performed NSW State results in 73% of subjects. Within the cohort 45% of students have been included on the Distinguished Achievers List having achieved at least one Band 6 result. 18% of the cohort received ATARs above 90.

We also take this opportunity to thank all of our staff for their commitment and support for the delivery of the Year Twelve program.

Significant Achievements

While we celebrate each individual’s success and that of the School as a whole, we particularly recognise our students and teachers in courses where over 60% of candidates scored in the top two bands (5 or 6) of achievement in a 2 unit course, or the top band (E4) in a 1 unit course. This is an amazing achievement.

Agriculture – 67%
Ancient History – 70%
Biology – 75%
Design and Technology – 100%
