School performance

Penrhos College places strong emphasis on the quality of our teaching and learning, together with the assessment and moderation of our teaching and learning programs, particularly in Years 11 and 12.

Our goal is to continuously improve the performance of all of our Year 12 students, whether taking the ATAR or alternative Vocational and Education Training pathway.

In 2017 Penrhos College won the primary and secondary school categories in the prestigious Governor’s School STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Awards, becoming the first school to win both categories.

We are proud to be formally recognised for our comprehensive and integrated STEM program, as well as our growing leadership and engagement on STEM matters across the education sector. Read more here: Penrhos wins Governor’s School STEM Awards

In 2017, Penrhos College ranked 4th in the League Tables with a median ATAR of 91.20 (Top 50 Median ATAR Schools) against a state median ATAR of 81.40.

We also celebrate 100% graduation of our Vocational and Educational Training (VET) students.
