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.

It’s not uncommon for some of our Year 12 students to have places secured at their chosen university before they even take the HSC.

Academic Growth

As a non-selective school, our students exhibit a range of interests, strengths and goals for their future. Whilst outcomes are important, we also strive for and celebrate academic growth.

To this end we use data at all stages to check that our students are reaching their academic potential and to direct our efforts where they are most needed. At the end of the student’s journey with us, we look back over time, with the help of independent experts in educational analysis, to reflect on our students’ progress.

We were delighted with the academic growth exhibited by the class of 2017, with the majority of them achieving HSC marks above the levels that were forecast from their Year 7 testing, and many of them well above. These results show not only the dedicated professionalism of our teachers, but the determination, effort and persistence of our students. We are so very proud of them.

NAPLAN results

In Years 3, 5, 7 and 9, our students perform strongly in the NAPLAN, demonstrating advancement year after year. We outperform both state and other independent schools.
