Scotch Oakburn has established a reputation for excellence in academic standards, consistently achieving high nationwide results. Our mission is to provide outstanding learning opportunities and creative challenges in a coeducational setting, encouraging and inspiring our learners to become active contributors to an ever-changing world.
Our combination of excellent teaching, the provision of a well-rounded education and the right attitude, sees our students produce consistently excellent results.
The Year 12 cohort of 2017 have left an indelible impression on the College and their peers. Their energy and enthusiasm to be involved in the broader life of the College has been an inspiration to the younger students and something for them to strive to emulate. As a Year Group, their sense of compassion, willingness to give of their best and the pride they display for the College have been their trademarks throughout their time at Scotch Oakburn. It is not surprising that, as a cohort, they have achieved an outstanding set of TCE results. Whilst we recognise individual excellence, the best measure of the learning environment created by our teachers and students is the median Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) for the Year Group. This year it is 90.55, which indicates that 50% of our Year 12 students were placed in the top 9.5% of students nationally.
Scotch Oakburn College congratulates our Year 12 students of 2017, who have achieved brilliantly in so many areas, including their studies.
Other indicators of the Year Group’s performance are:
- 24% of the cohort achieved an ATAR of 95+, placing them in the top 5% of students nationally;
- 53.0% of students achieved an ATAR of 90+;
- 81% of students achieved an ATAR of 80+.
