While we are not an academically selective school, we are an academic institution that strives for excellence and our academic results consistently rank among the very best in the state.
We are not content to judge ourselves against other schools in our immediate environment; rather, we raise our sights and draw inspiration from the best educational systems around the world and from evidence-based research.
Our dedicated teaching staff are committed to ensuring every child has the opportunity to achieve. This holds true whether the boys have different needs, come from different educational settings, have different attention spans and interests, different language abilities or different cultural backgrounds.
2020 Seniors’ academic results at a glance:
The Class of 2020 have made history by being the first cohort to graduate through the Senior Assessment Tertiary Entrance (SATE) system. They were the first full cohort of Prep, the first Year 7s into High School and the first group to receive an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) rather than OP in Queensland.
The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank is used for university entrance and the highest ranking on the 2,000 point scale is 99.95, with increments of 0.05.
Data released by the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) indicates the following results of those students from the Class of 2020 (*from the 83.7% of the students who applied for tertiary entrance and have consented to share their information with the school):
- 9.3% received an ATAR of 99 and above*
- 24.1% received an ATAR of 95 and above*
- 44.2% received an ATAR of 90 and above*
- The median score was 88.30 (the ATAR of the middle student)*
The College would also like to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of Matthew Chen, Cody Fang and Max Foreman who received the highest possible ATAR of 99.95, being three of only 30 Year 12 students across the state to do so.
