At Clarendon, attention and efforts are on delivering on our focus statement. We work to maximise a student’s competence, skills and capacity so that, at the end of their time at school, when they stand on the threshold of their future, they can choose their heart’s desire.
Today, we celebrate the successes of our entire Year 12 cohort.
- 83% (131 students) achieved a university entrance score over 80, putting them in the top 20% of the nation.
- 15% achieved above 98.
- 48 students attained an ATAR above 95 and 11 students achieved above 99.
- 37 is Clarendon’s median Study Score.
Our Dux for 2021 is Jackson Dun with 99.95. Achieving a perfect score of 50 in Further Mathematics last year, Jackson built on that in 2021 with 50s in English Language and Chemistry.
Students have good reason to celebrate when the middle student within our cohort has achieved an ATAR of 91. The Class of 2021 achieved results that reflect their determination, persistence and passion. The outcomes also reflect the commitment of the team involved in supporting, guiding and caring for them. Congratulations to our students, their families and the staff.
Our Year 12 students, these young adults, stand on the threshold of their future; their next steps will see them move closer to their goals and dreams. And those dreams are diverse – from aviation and aerospace engineering, agronomy and the armed services to marine biology, medicine, optometry, primary teaching and veterinary science. We know that these students have the competence, skills and capacity to confidently pursue the next stage of their lives.
As we approach the end of 2021, it is clear that over the past two years of turbulence our students have been courageous and resilient. More important than the final results is the fact that they have proved themselves capable of confronting and embracing challenges as opportunities to adapt and thrive. They have demonstrated determination and compassion, a great sense of fun and enormous strength of character. We are proud of every single one of them.
We wish all of our 2021 Year 12 students every success as they embark on the next phase of their lives.
