Canterbury College continues to outperform many of its more expensive Brisbane rivals

The 2020 Year 12 students of Canterbury College have achieved results which are amongst the best in the College’s 33 year history.

  • 14% of students achieved an ATAR of 95 or above.
  • 26% of students achieved an ATAR of 90 or above.
  • 48% of students achieved an ATAR of 80 or above.

Principal, Mr Dan Walker attributes these outstanding results to the calibre of the working relationship between Year 12 students and their teachers. He reflected that “motivated students who work hard and trust their teachers’ advice alongside experienced, passionate teachers who go the extra mile, sit at the heart of the Canterbury experience.”

Whilst the College is pleased with this wonderful array of academic results, we are focussed on allroundedness in our students, with participation and achievement in community service and leadership, the arts and sport our overall objective for every single student.

Most importantly of all, Head of Secondary School, Mrs Rebecca Adamson, is “supremely confident that these results will position our class of 2020 to enter the courses and careers of their choice.”

Mr Walker also is pleased that the College’s OP and now ATAR eligibility percentage, which has averaged over 78% for the past decade, means that the ATAR results achieved by the school are a statistically meaningful snapshot of the College’s academic culture and performance. He calls on all schools to be
transparent with their ATAR eligibility percentage, in the interests of fair comparisons being made in public forums.
