Academic Programs and HSC Results
Our academic results are consistently strong in a broad range of subjects, with students regularly appearing in the Higher School Certificate (HSC) Premier’s High Achiever and All-rounder lists. Over 70 percent of our students are offered a university place each year (state average is 30 percent). Our overall scores reflect the ever increasing strength of our academic results.

We are extremely proud of the results, the diversity, and of the personal achievements of every one of our students.
