2017 Academic Results


St Aidan’s 2017 academic results

St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School 2017 Year 12 students have received strong academic results yet again with the release of this year’s Overall Positions for the 2017 Senior cohort. This year’s results saw:

  • 40% achieving an OP between 1 and 5; and

  • 96% achieving an OP between 1 and 15.

These consistently excellent outcomes (an average of 98% OP 1-15 for the last four years) point to the high quality education the School delivers year after year.

Our 2017 Year 12 students are to be congratulated on their outstanding academic achievement. The OP results show St Aidan’s continues to be one of the top performing independent schools in Queensland with almost 1 in 2 students achieving an OP 1-6.

Overall Position Results (2017)

Result           St Aidan’s       State

OP 1 – 3          24%                 12%

OP 1 – 5          40%                 22%

OP 1 – 10        75%                 53%

OP 1 – 15        96%                 82%

These results reflect the hard work and diligence of the 2017 cohort and the quality and professionalism of the teaching staff and educational experience offered at St Aidan’s. This is enhanced by focused academic management of every student’s performance.

These results are particularly noteworthy as the majority of the total cohort of 2017 graduating students are OP eligible with 100% of students also attaining their Queensland Certificate of Education.

While we recognise our students who achieved such strong OP scores; it is important to note these scores are only one indicator of dedication, hard work and excellence. 100% of all exiting Year 12 students have graduated with at least one qualification; either an OP score and/or a VET qualification.

Queensland Core Skills Test Results (2017)

I also congratulate the 2017 graduates on their performance on the Queensland Core Skills Test. 65% of OP-eligible students were awarded an A or B (in comparison with 45% for the State).

            St Aidan's  State

A            24%         18%

B            41%         27%

C            31%         34%

D            3%           21%

E            0%           0.3%

It is pleasing to see our students are recognised through these outstanding results, and that the quality of our education delivers these outcomes. The way our teachers work with students and parents to plan and cater to the individual needs of students is a real strength of St Aidan’s.

These strong results reflect both the quality teaching and learning opportunities provided at St Aidan’s and the diligent work done by our staff, students and parents in maintaining a focus on education.
