The Class of 2015 received some outstanding HSC results. It is terrific to see what constant effort and consistency across subjects can achieve and the boys have notched up a good number of personal bests. 

Congratulations to the following students who received multiple Merit listings:

Daniel WOOLNOUGH (7); Jeremy BLADES (4); Mark PIROTTA (4); Michael SPITERI (3)

The members of the Class of 2015, earned 18 listings on the Distinguished Achiever’s List (Band 6 results) in 13 subjects.

Standout subjects for 2015 were again our core English and Mathematics. General Mathematics results were well above state average (12.25 marks above), Standard English (2.61 marks above), Advanced English (5.45 marks above), Business Studies (4.59 marks above), Extension 1 and 2 English (3.45 and 3.86 marks above), Mathematics Extension 1 and 2 (18.20 and 13.72 marks above), Modern History (5.09 marks above), Music 2 (4.92 marks above), Physics (8.47 marks above).

With some strong performances in the middle order where boys have compiled good scores at the right moment, it is noticeable also that the great majority of boys have succeeded in producing a spread of consistent marks. Particularly pleasing are boys whose Year 9 Naplan grades were in the bottom 2 bands in reading and writing and now they are in the top 2 bands in the HSC – a wonderful result.


All the boys are to be congratulated. The HSC is a long and grueling race and all finishers are to be thoroughly commended.

Daniel Woolnough topped the class of 2015 receiving the All Rounder Award, with an ATAR of 99.7.
