The 2016 HSC results are outstanding and are a reflection of the outstanding effort and commitment invested by our students with the caring and professional teaching, support and guidance provided by our staff. Once again students from All Saints’ College have exceeded expectations and achieved extraordinarily well in the 2016 Higher School Certificate. There were 49 students in the class of 2016. The following summarises some of their achievements:

• Lily McClelland from Bathurst was Dux of All Saints’ College with an ATAR of 96.05.

• 64% of students achieved one or more Band 5/6 results, three quarters of those in more than one subject.

• Students achieved 14 Merit Listings across a wide range of courses. Twenty percent of our students received a merit listing.

• All Saints’ College presented students in 26 courses and, of these, an outstanding 17 were above the state mean, some by significant margins. For example, the mean mark in Design & Technology, Agriculture and Music were all more than five marks above the state average. Music had 3.6 times the expected number of Band 6 results and Design & Technology and Agriculture had more than double the expected number of Band 6 results.

• Because Band 6 results (Merit Listings) concentrate on the top students, some consider that a more meaningful statistic is the proportion of students in the top 2 bands (a mark of 80 or more in a 2 Unit course). The following courses all had at least half (and in some cases all) of the All Saints’ candidature in the top 2 bands: Chemistry, Design & Technology, Drama, English (Advanced), English Extension, English Extension 2, History Extension, Mathematics Extension, Music 1, Senior Science and Visual Arts.

The above results are testimony to the dedication of the staff at All Saints’ and the commitment to excellence fostered amongst the College community. Attention to individual students and the encouragement of students to take responsibility for their own learning through a collaborative approach lies at the heart and soul of this success. We are particularly proud of our ‘average’ students who have achieved results that are well beyond average. At this time it is pleasing to speak to students and learn that they have gained entry into their preferred university courses. We wish all our students continuing success in the future.
