Academic achievement

Pittwater House is a small school with a strong focus on each student’s academic growth. We routinely produce strong results in the HSC and NAPLAN and our HSC students consistently rank in the Distinguished Achievers List.

We are proud of all our students for their excellent results, as they repeatedly outperform many public and independent schools. We believe the true measure of success is the value added to each student’s results as they progress through their education. 

In 2016, around 25% of our students achieved an ATAR of 90% or above (band 6 results).
