Performance & Academic Excellence

Congratulations to all our Year 11 & 12 students in 2021 for their outstanding Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) results and their commitment to the School’s Purpose and Concerns.

2021 exceptional results:

We are proud of all of our 2021 graduates, their remarkable results and all that they have achieved during their time with The Friends’ School.  In 2021, 48.3% of our graduating students achieved an ATAR of 90+, placing them in the top 10% of students nationally.

  • 18 TCE and IB students achieved an ATAR (or equivalent ATAR) of 98.5+, placing them in the top 1% of students nationally. 
  • The median ATAR for the 2021 cohort was 89.9.
  • Across the whole Year 12 cohort, 99.2% of students achieved a TCE and 96.1% achieved an ATAR.

These results are a testament to the wonderful efforts of our students, our staff and to the dedication of our supportive School community. This was a year group that participated in all aspects of School life, represented the School’s values and they leave Friends’ enriched by much more than top ATARs.

 Principal Nelson File congratulated the Class of 2021, whilst also acknowledging that Friends’ students are even more than their ATAR.

 “Friends’ students are passionate young people who want to make a difference in the world. I know they will make an impact on those around them to help create a world that is sensitive to the needs of others and the environment, be strong in service and hold a global perspective.

 “These TCE and IB students embody the school motto, ‘Nemo Sibi Nascitur – No One Is Born For Self Alone’.  Our students worked hard throughout the year and together, supported by their teachers and families, to achieve these excellent results.”

 These results are the culmination of, in most cases, at least 14 years of education, with some Year 12 students’ results among the highest scores in the state, while for others, their hard work has resulted in achievements in doing their best.

On behalf of the whole School community, congratulations to all our students on their hard work and excellent achievements. We hope that these young people go on to “let their lives speak”

Performance Outcomes Report

The School is required to report to the School community on specific performance outcomes for the calendar year in order to comply with the Australian Education Act 2013.  The 2021 Report can be viewed at the following link.

Parent, Student and Staff Satisfaction

The Friends’ School uses the Council of International Schools (CIS) satisfaction survey, adapting it for The Friends’ School. The survey is produced and conducted every two years and an updated survey will be undertaken in 2022. The 2020 survey scores continue to provide positive results that are predominantly rated in the ‘High Satisfaction’ category. The survey also provides valuable feedback and areas for development.
