TCE results were released recently and we are pleased to advise that our girls’ results are up there with the best in the country.
Most importantly, we are very proud of the efforts of the entire Year 12 class, 97% of whom achieved an ATAR score. The achievements of all the girls who produced their best efforts across the spectrum are to be commended, as are the dedicated teachers who have guided them so expertly over the course of their time at Fahan.
When assessing a cohort’s results a key indicator of the level of academic achievement is the School’s median ATAR. Some key achievements include:
· Fahan’s median ATAR was 93.7, meaning that 50% of our students’ achieved results that placed them in the top 6.3% of students nationally.
· 33% of our girls achieved an ATAR of 95+, placing them in the top 5% of students nationally
· An amazing 70% of our students achieved an ATAR of 90+, placing them in the top 10% of students nationally
These are wonderful results for the girls, their families and the School. They place us alongside the leading schools in Australia. For example, at the exclusive Melbourne girls’ school, Presbyterian Ladies College, the average ATAR was 93.45 with 69 per cent of the cohort scoring above 90. At Haileybury 46 per cent of students got ATARs of 90+ (The Age, 16 December 2014).
The following girls achieved outstanding ATARs of 97 or above: Nicola Czaplinski 97.95, Stephanie Wiltshire 97.9, Sylvia Gralak 97.7, Ivy Kaissis 97.55 and Jenna Phillips 97.
Over all the results are probably the best achieved by a group of Fahan students, which is remarkable considering that, based on figures on the TQA website, over the last six years, Fahan girls already have the highest percentage of students achieving ATARs as well as the highest mean ATAR scores over this period.
Congratulations to the 2014 girls who led the School so well in 2014 and their dedicated teachers who have guided them to achieve such wonderful results.
