Congratulations to our 2017 Cohort on WACE Results

We are pleased to report the WACE results achieved by the Guildford Grammar School students of 2017 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 22 students (27 % of those sitting four or more ATAR examinations) achieving an ATAR above 90, ranking their results in the top 10% nationally. Six of these students achieved an ATAR of 97.5 or more, placing them in the top 2.5% Australia-wide. These students have the honour of entering Guildford Grammar School’s Academic Honour Guild (previously known as the 400 club).

Our special congratulations go to Joel Moffet and Jordan Syme, who both achieved an ATAR of 99.85, Joshua Ding (99.4), Ryan Wijayananda (99.35), Thomas Stanicich (98.45) and Daniel Irvin (97.85).

A snapshot of the Class of 2017 reveals:

  • 78 % of all Guildford Grammar School Year 12 students achieved an ATAR

  • 27 % of ATAR students achieved an ATAR above 90

  • A further 24 % of students achieved an ATAR of between 80 and 89.95

  • The median ATAR of students applying for University was 83.3

It is very pleasing to note that 42 students out of 83 (51% of Guildford Grammar School students who sat four or more examinations), were placed in the top 20% of the state using the ATAR as the measure.

Eight 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 students were:

  • Joshua Ding
