Top of the class over five years
We are proud to announce that our Year 5 students rank amongst the State’s very best in an independent study of five years of Year 5 NAPLAN results 2014-2018, published by the Daily Telegraph on Friday 6 December.
- Number 35 in the Year 5 Top 50 Best Performing Schools
- Only K to 12 co-ed school in the top 35
- 15th ranked non-selective school
- Only non-metropolitan school in the top 50
The Daily Telegraph ranked the best performing Year 5 schools by combining every school’s Year 5 results across the five different NAPLAN subjects (reading, writing, spelling, grammar & punctuation and numeracy) and calculated the yearly average score.
"Excellence in numeracy and literacy is all part of the balanced education our students receive on their journey to achieving their academic potential," said Headmaster Bill Low.
"Literacy and numeracy skills remain the building blocks for learning in all curriculum areas, playing a key part in a comprehensive education that includes diverse cocurricular and wellbeing programs."
"This external benchmarking of our Year 5 students’ consistently excellent NAPLAN performance demonstrates the strong foundations laid in our Junior School over a number of years."
"These results reflect a systematic and explicit approach to the teaching of literacy and numeracy throughout the school and they are a tribute to our students and the expertise of our teachers. A further important factor is the strong family support for learning that our students receive from home."
"We’ve invested heavily in our learning culture and infrastructure to deliver the most innovative next generation learning experience for our students and we’re excited to move into our new K to 6 junior school facility opening in 2021."
