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.

The median ATAR for our School remains very strong at 89 which has resulted in a mean ATAR of 83. Given our School is open entry, welcoming girls of all academic ability, these results are even more extraordinary and are a testament to the true depth of our unique learning culture.
In individual subjects, the average study score across Victoria is 30. Only 9% of students will receive a study score on or above 40. We are delighted that 52% of our students achieved at least one exceptional study score of 40 or above in a diverse range of subject areas.
