Results & Achievements

We empower young women through the life-changing gift of a high-quality, contemporary education. Our students regularly win prizes for sporting and artistic endeavour, and attain a high level of academic achievement as measured by key markers including NAPLAN (National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy), VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) and ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking) scores. These results are a reflection of the hard work put in by students and their teachers over many years in all critical areas of learning. We are particularly delighted when students achieve or surpass their personal expectations which are not always reflected in a test or ATAR score. Our results are particularly pleasing considering we are a non-selective entry school and welcome students of all talents and abilities.

Through our personalised approach to learning, combined with our expertise in the education of girls, we help students build their self-confidence, achieve excellence and make a difference – these are the results that matter most.
