2020 Academic Results

  Add to Favourites

Our 2020 Higher School Certificate (HSC) and International Baccalaureate (IB) results were excellent and a tribute to the girls’ fortitude and immense efforts in a challenging and unprecedented academic year. Many students achieved well above expectations. The results were also a credit to our immensely dedicated teaching staff, who surpassed themselves in providing the best possible academic support, as we successfully transitioned to online learning and back again.

2020 Academic Performance Highlights





Eighty-eight girls sat the HSC and 30 girls sat the IB in 2020, applying themselves with determination, maturity and focus. Two students achieved perfect IB scores of 45, which equate to an ATAR of 99.95. Almost a quarter (23%) of the IB cohort attained an ATAR equivalent of 98.05 or above and 90% achieved an ATAR equivalent of 90 or more.

Fifty per cent of the combined HSC and IB cohort, achieved an ATAR of 90 or more and 25% achieved an ATAR of 95 or more, an exceptional result for a non-selective school. A remarkable 21 HSC students were nominated for Showcases.
