We are pleased to report the WACE results achieved by the Guildford Grammar School students of 2016 and congratulate them on their fine academic achievements reflected in these results. We acknowledge the hard work invested by these students and their teachers, supported by their families and friends.
High academic achievement is a feature of our results, with 27 boys (32% of those sitting four or more ATAR examinations) achieving an ATAR above 90, ranking their results in the top 10% nationally. Seven of these boys achieved an ATAR of 97.5 or more, placing them in the top 2.5% Australia-wide. These boys have the honour of entering Guildford Grammar School’s Academic Honour Guild (previously known as the 400 club).
Our special congratulations go to Cassius Hynam, who achieved an ATAR of 99.6, Joshua Pinelli (98.5), Jack McLean (98.25), Kane Clarke (98.15), Trentan Davey (98.1), Thomas McCormack (97.75) and Hudson Pennells (97.7).
A snapshot of the Class of 2016 reveals:
- 76% of all Guildford Grammar School Year 12 students achieved an ATAR
- 32% of ATAR students achieved an ATAR above 90
- A further 35% of students achieved an ATAR of between 80 and 89.95
- The median ATAR of students applying for University was 84.9
It is very pleasing to note that 56 students out of 84 (67% of Guildford Grammar School students who sat four or more examinations), were placed in the top 20% nationally using the ATAR as the measure.
Nine members of the graduating class achieved entry to the Senior Academic Honour Society, which requires the impressive attainment of a minimum twelve A grades across the first eighteen months of Years 11 and 12. These boys were:
