ALL Saints’ College has been ranked 13th in country Australia by the Weekend Australian newspaper after its students achieved above-average results in the 2016 NAPLAN exams.
The results were printed in the October 1 edition of the newspaper and are part of an annual feature that includes almost 10,000 schools across the country.
In addition to being ranked 13th in country Australia, All Saints’ College out performed every other school in the Central West.
All Saints’ College headmaster Steven O’Connor said the Weekend Australian “goes to great lengths” to analyse all the data from each school and determine ratings.
To see the school perform as well as it did was a “very pleasing” outcome, he said, especially considering that it was on a national level, not just across NSW.
“We’re delighted and I think it indicates the outstanding teaching and learning at All Saints’ College,” Mr O’Connor said.
“It is very pleasing where [the school] is ranked on that listing, which is improving year by year.”
He went on to say that All Saints’ College has a strong commitment to excellence, which is only aided by the willingness of students to learn.
“We are just very pleased that we continue to achieve great outcomes with and for our students,” Mr O’Connor said.
“It is lovely to get some acknowledgement when it comes around.”
A number of other schools in the 2795 postcode also returned good results on the NAPLAN exams.
O’Connell Public School delivered the best results of all the primary schools, achieving above average results across all the key aspects targeted by the NAPLAN exams.
These aspects are reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation and numeracy.
The full results for each school are available to view on The Australian website.
