Woodleigh School VCE Results 2016 – Our Best ATAR Scores Ever

Today we are immensely proud of the Class of 2016. These fantastic young adults have worked incredibly hard all year; their persistence, dedication and determination to be their best is exceptional. Their individual efforts have collectively earned Woodleigh our best ATAR results ever. A truly outstanding achievement.

With results as strong as these, it is easy to get caught up in the numbers. But it’s not just about scores. More important to us is the individual growth, the extent to which students have outperformed expectations and reached their full potential. It is most gratifying to see our students’ tenacity rewarded not only with excellent results, but with personal bests and clear pathways to future success.

I am delighted to announce that the Dux of Woodleigh School for 2016, with an ATAR of 99.65, is Katherine Robertson. Katherine was one of three students who received an ATAR of 99 or more. Her perfect study scores of 50 in both English and Studio Arts are a further credit to her efforts, talents and creativity.

I would also like to acknowledge the results of Catherine Crotty and Luke Myatt. Their respective scores of 99.40 and 99.25 place them in the top 1% of students in the state. Catherine’s perfect score of 50 in Legal Studies is a further reflection of her talents in this field.

This year we had 73 students complete a scored VCE. (An additional ten students completed a scoreless program.)

The Class of 2016 have achieved the following results:

  • Three perfect study scores of 50 in English, Legal Studies and Studio Arts.
  • A further three study scores of 49 in English, Further Maths, and Outdoor and Environmental Studies.
  • 12 study scores of 45+, placing those students in the top 2% of statewide results for that subject.
  • Three Woodleigh students achieved an ATAR above 99 (4% of the cohort)
  • 12 students achieved an ATAR above 95 (16.5% of the cohort)
  • 23 students achieved an ATAR above 90 (31.5% of the cohort)
  • 57% of our students achieved an ATAR of 80+
  • 82% of our students achieved an ATAR of 70+
  • 97% of our students achieved an ATAR of 50+

Our median study score has increased to 35, and our median ATAR is an impressive 86.1.

It is only as a result of a commitment to the individual that we are able to achieve these sorts of outcomes. The work our teachers do is phenomenal.
We congratulate all of our students and committed staff on their efforts.

Each year we farewell a class of articulate, confident and personable young adults who have developed the necessary skills to find their way and succeed in their chosen vocation. Each year, our students leave Woodleigh with much more than a list of academic successes. They leave with an understanding of who they are, if not exactly where they are headed.

We wish all students from the Class of 2016 the very best as they head off to write the next chapter in their lives – be it University, TAFE, work, travel or community service programs abroad.

Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.
