Outstanding Academic Achievement

Throughout Term 1 2016 the school has undertaken extensive analysis of HSC results, particularly reviewing student performance over the last three years. There is much to celebrate as we look through these achievements and they are certainly worthwhile sharing with you.

Highlights of this include:

  • 83% of our HSC students are engaged in full time tertiary study with 87.5% of students who elected to receive an ATAR going on to university study. Universities include: University of NSW, University of Technology, Sydney University, Macquarie University, University of Wollongong, Western Sydney University, Notre Dame and Australian Catholic University. Courses studied include Medical Science, Architecture and Urban Planning, Biomedical Science, Health and Exercise Sciences and Health Promotion, Business and Finance, Commerce, Arts, Law, Criminology, Technology, Fashion Design, Nursing and Education. This is consistent with the improvement seen over the last three years.
  • During the last three years, Moorefield Girls High School students have performed above state average in Ancient History, Biology, Business Studies, Community and Family Studies, English Standard, English Advanced, English Extension 2, History Extension, Legal Studies, Modern History, Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, Physics, Visual Arts, Business Services, Hospitality (Kitchen Operations) and Retail Services. This demonstrates the ongoing achievement of our students and dedication of our teaching staff.
  • Value added data records the learning growth of students at Moorefield Girls High School from year 9 to the HSC. This data places our school in the top 12% of secondary schools for growth. This highlights the benefit of being a smaller year 7 to 12 comprehensive high school for girls. We get to know your daughter and provide support for her to achieve.
  • Each year, we have a higher percentage of students achieve in the higher bands in the HSC than the state average. In 2014 57% of our students achieved a result in the top two bands in the HSC. This is an outstanding result.
  • Our students have been recognised for their achievement in Visual Arts in the HSC. In 2015 a student's major art work was selected as a part of Art Express. This is the annual exhibition of the outstanding student artworks for the HSC Visual Arts course. This builds on the 2014 result where a student's work was shortlisted.

Moorefield Girls High School offers your daughter a focused learning environment, where achievement is nurtured and supported at all levels. We have specialist teachers who are experts in educating girls. They will support your daughters goals for tertiary study and develop in your daughter a love of learning from year 7 to year 12.
