Academic achievements

2017 NAPLAN results

Brisbane Girls Grammar School has achieved excellent results in the 2017 NAPLAN testing.

Principal, Jacinda Euler said the results are a strong endorsement of the School’s academic programmes and inspiring learning culture.

‘We are pleased that the School’s NAPLAN results reflect our commitment to excellence in scholarship across the foundations of literacy and numeracy.

‘These results are just one indicator of academic achievement, however, along with other forms of school-based assessment, contribute to a balanced view of our students’ academic progress,’ Ms Euler said.

Standardised NAPLAN testing is completed by all Australian students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.  The achievements of Year 7 and 9 Grammar girls (the only years at the school to take NAPLAN tests) are recorded below.

2016 had been a year of exceptional academic achievement for our School, following our younger students’ successes in the Australian National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN). We ranked as the top-performing school, overall, in Queensland, our Year 9 cohort were the top performers in Queensland for the third year in a row and our Year 7 girls ranked second overall. As an academically non-selective School, that offers no scholarships and has 100 per cent of students OP eligible, these impressive results are a credit to the high quality teaching at the School and reflect the talent and hard work of the girls and their teachers.

Through the diverse opportunities and experiences at Girls Grammar, we inspire our girls to dare to dream, without fear of failure, and to test the unfamiliar; to develop enduring life and leadership skills and to become resilient and adventurous. Maintaining balance between their academic learning and the enriching co-curricular and service activities helps our students to develop into well-rounded young women ready to contribute confidently to the world. This is certainly exhibited by our 2016 Year 12 cohort and we are exceptionally proud of our students.

Consistent outstanding academic results and student destinations reflect how Girls Grammar prepares students for greatly varied future paths. Our students choose to study at universities across Australia and internationally and we look forward to learning of the intended destinations of our most recent graduates in the New Year.

The strength of our vibrant learning environment to foster exceptional scholarship is evident in our results and reinforces our reputation as one of Australia’s leading girls’ schools. We congratulate all of our girls and teaching staff on their outstanding efforts to attain these results.
