Central Coast Grammar School achieve successful results across the cohort in 2019 HSC
Central Coast Grammar School’s Class of 2019 is reaping the rewards of 13 years of learning and hard work with HSC results issued today.
Dedication, focus and balance were three key priorities resulting in one third of students achieving an ATAR over 90. 12% gained an ATAR of over 95 and 64% achieved an ATAR over 80.
Headmaster, Mr William Low said he was particularly pleased that so many students had achieved their aspirations and would be successful in their chosen area of university study.
“A large number of offers for university study have already been forthcoming for a wide range of degrees. The offers to students were from universities within NSW, across Australia and the USA.”
“The continually improving percentage of students with ATARs over 80 and over 90 has been an ongoing emphasis within the school,” said Mr Low.
