Outcomes and University

As a non-selective school, St Margaret's Berwick Grammar accepts students to the school with varying abilities. It is the school's aim to help the student achieve their best, preparing students for the next step in their journey and for life!

We achieve this through our world-class teaching staff, who work with students to progressively build their confidence and capabilities, providing the guidance these young people need to develop good study habits, helping them take control of their learning so that they can achieve their personal best. Our consistent results in NAPLAN and VCE are not only a testament to both the students' efforts and the quality of the teaching they receive but also of our Careers Team, who work with our students and Academic Directors to provide the advice and guidance to try and ensure that every student progresses.  We are therefore particularly proud of the outcomes and results achieved by all of our students.

NAPLAN

The school’s NAPLAN results highlight the value the school provides to our students, with significant assessment gains made as to the student’s progress through the school.

Our 2019 Year 7 and 9 results show that our students perform ‘above’ students of a similar background and ‘well above’ when compared to all Australian students.

NAPLAN results show that in every assessment category students performed well above the state.
