Performance & Academic Excellence

For many years, The Friends’ School Year 12 graduates have maintained outstanding academic achievements, with 2020 being no exception. 

In 2020, 56.7% of our graduating students achieved an ATAR of 90+, placing them in the top 10% of students nationally.

2020's outstanding results:

  • 22 TCE and International Baccalaureate (IB) students achieved an ATAR (or equivalent ATAR) of 98.5+, placing them in the top 1% of students nationally. 
  • 56.7% of our 2020 graduates achieved an ATAR of 90+
  • The average ATAR for our 2020 cohort was 87.19 

We are proud of all of our 2020 graduates, their remarkable results and all that they have achieved during their time with The Friends’ School. All of our students have displayed remarkable resilience throughout 2020, demonstrating a commitment to their studies throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying challenges.

These results are a testament to the wonderful efforts of our students and to the dedication of their supportive school community. Even when health restrictions hampered normal activities, this year group participated in nearly all aspects of School life and represented the School’s values by supporting each other throughout this challenging year.

On behalf of the staff and our students, we would also like to acknowledge the contributions from parents, particularly during Distance Learning.

Congratulations to all our students on your hard work and excellent achievements. We hope that these young people go on to “let their lives speak” and hold this quote by Quakerism founder George Fox close in their minds and lives:

“Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations, wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them. Then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone.”
