NAPLAN Results 2015

The Cathedral School 2015 NAPLAN results are very pleasing and we acknowledge the wonderful efforts of our students and those who support them – their teachers and parents.

All of The Cathedral School’s results, across all year levels tested (Year 3, 5, 7 and 9) and in each category (Writing, Reading, Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation and Numeracy) are well above the state and national averages.

Year 3 scored 100% in grammar and punctuation and writing and 98% in numeracy, reading and spelling. Year 5 scored 100% in all five categories. Year 7 scored 100% in Reading and Numeracy, 97% in Spelling and 95% in both Grammar and Punctuation and Writing. Year 9 scored 100% in Numeracy, 96% in Reading, 95% in Spelling, 94% in Grammar and Punctuation and 84% in Writing.

We are very pleased with these results, but will continue to operate in a reflective manner for the benefit of our students. The continued focus on further developing excellent teaching practice throughout the entire school, is allowing the students of The Cathedral School the best possible opportunities to achieve to their potential.

While NAPLAN is only one measure of the well-rounded education we seek to provide our students, the data provided through this testing is valuable in assisting the school to further refine our curriculum and be responsive to the students’ collective and individual needs.
