Why Ravenswood

2018 Academic Results

  Add to Favourites

We congratulate our Class of 2018 Higher School Certificate (HSC) and International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) students on their excellent academic performance and pay tribute to the Ravenswood teaching staff who have supported them on their journey.



Ninety nine girls sat the HSC and 32 girls sat the IB in 2018, applying themselves with determination, maturity and focus. The School achieved a perfect IB score of 45, which converts to an ATAR of 99.95. Forty four per cent of the Class of 2018, both HSC and IB students, achieved an ATAR above 90. Furthermore, 28% of the combined cohort achieved an ATAR of 95 or above, an outstanding outcome for a proudly non-selective school.

In the HSC, Ravenswood achieved a place in the Top Achievers list (top ten of the State) with a First in Course for Textiles and Design. Fifty-three Ravenswood girls were placed on the Distinguished Achievers list, with 134 mentions between them. We also achieved thirteen nominations for student showcases. Of the thirty two Ravenswood girls who sat the IB, five attained ATARs above 99 and 61% achieved an ATAR over 90.
