Academic Performance

HSC 2016 Results

“A Scots education brings the students into contact with the brightest researchers, practical achievers and creative dreamers, and trains them in the type of critical thinking that leads to significant advances in knowledge and understanding.”
Dr Ian PM Lambert, Principal

The College’s continued focus on academic achievement across the board has seen us excel in a number of areas.

In 2016, 242 students sat the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the largest cohort in the College’s history. This included 200 Year 12 students and a further 42 students from Years 10 and 11 who are pursuing an accelerated pathway. This is a significant increase on previous years with 216 students sitting the HSC in 2015 and 190 in 2014.

NAPLAN Results

The Scots College significantly supplements NAPLAN data with ALLWELL data collected in alternate years to NAPLAN testing and with Morrisby data collected in Year 10. This comprehensive analysis of student ability and progress supports teacher planning and provision for creating learning experiences that effectively meet each boy at their point of need.

Numeracy, writing and language conventions will continue to be an area of focus for our teaching staff.
