Performance & Academic Excellence

In 2018, 49.4% of our graduating students achieved an ATAR of 90+, placing them in the top 10% of students nationally.

For many years, The Friends’ School Year 12 graduates have maintained outstanding academic achievements, with 2018 being no exception. 

2018's outstanding results:

  • 20 TCE and International Baccalaureate (IB) students achieved an ATAR (or equivalent ATAR) of 98.5+, placing them in the top 1% of students nationally. 
  • 49.4% of 2018 graduates achieved an ATAR of 90+
  • The average ATAR for our 2018 cohort was 87.22
  • Our IB students achieved an average score of 34.9, compared with the world average of 29.8. 

We are proud of all of our 2018 graduates, their remarkable results and all that they have achieved during their time with The Friends’ School. Our students demonstrated a commitment to their learning and care for one another that, for some, placed them among the highest achieving students nationally. For others, their dedication and hard work have resulted in achievements well beyond their own initial goals. 

The outstanding 2018 TCE results are largely due to the dedication of students and staff working in partnership and inspired by the School’s belief in the intrinsic worth of each person and its expectation that students will do their best.

On behalf of the staff and our students, we would also like to acknowledge the contributions from parents, who are integral to Friends’ continuing its strong history of delivering leading academic results.

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.”
