Results and achievements


St Paul’s 2019 VCE results represent the diligent efforts and admirable achievements of our students.

In all 11 students achieved an ATAR over 95 (11%) and 22 students achieved an ATAR over 90 (22%).

Amongst those achieving above 90 are a number of inspiring success stories from students whose hard work and perseverance have enabled them to exceed their own expectations.  There are several examples of students who, with support, have triumphed over family and personal hardships to achieve impressive results.

The percentage of students who achieved an ATAR of over 80 was an impressive 48%, placing them in the top 20% of the state.

The 2019 cohort plan to study a diverse range of courses from medicine and engineering, to fashion design and fine arts.

St Paul’s also has students regularly achieving outstanding results and hence selection into the VCE Season of Excellence that is run by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). Only the most outstanding VCE students from the previous year, are invited to exhibit or perform.


In addition to success in their core subjects, our students are consistently provided with opportunities to demonstrate their skills and achievements in a wide variety of other areas.

Some of the many areas in which our students have excelled in the last twelve months are:

  • Human Powered Vehicle Competition
  • RoboCup Regional and State Competitions
  • Tournament of Minds (Winners of the 2019 International Finals – STEM and Language Literature)
  • DAV Debating
  • Australian Mathematics Olympiad selection


The School’s 2019 NAPLAN results were also very positive and the growth rate between levels is very strong, with most cohorts beginning and ending the two-year period of testing well above state means. The School’s mean score exceeds that of the state in virtually all areas of testing and most year levels.

Numeracy growth is also particularly strong across the School and literacy continues to be an area of student strength.

We know that each year group is different and some are stronger than others. Hence, we believe it is important to be catering appropriately for each and every student at their level of development; providing the right level of challenge and opportunity to achieve and progress.

A more detailed analysis of the School’s 2019 NAPLAN results is provided in the School’s Annual Report.  NAPLAN results are also available on the My School website www.myschool.edu.au.
