NAPLAN success

Recent media coverage has highlighted that our girls have performed exceptionally well in the 2013 NAPLAN tests. We are proud of the efforts of our students who always approach assessments with calmness and an appropriate level of seriousness and perspective.

100% of our Primary and Year 7 students tested at or above the National standards which is achieved by few schools nationally. This success is a recognition of the individual academic care afforded to Girls Grammar students in small classes, with personalised programs and specialist teachers. Our Year 9 cohort also achieved to a very high level and ranks as a leader in the region in literacy and numeracy.

Whilst we are proud of the results, we also acknowledge that they need to be viewed in context. NAPLAN results provide a rich source of data which provides teachers with insight into consolidation and extension opportunities for your daughters.

We congratulate all students on the way they managed the challenge of the National testing and look forward to continuing to build on these strong academic results.
