The Cathedral School is delighted to congratulate the Year 12 students from 2017 on their final academic results. Following a busy year, highlighted by academic, vocational and extracurricular achievements, as well as the school’s Centenary celebrations, our students are now looking forward to the university offers they will receive from QTAC in January.
Students applying to University through the OP pathway had their results released online on Saturday and we are pleased to announce that 17.4% received an OP 1-3 compared with a state average of 11.75%, and 61.6% of students received an OP from 1-10 compared with a state average of 53.05%.
Special congratulations must go to our three students who received the highest score possible in Queensland, an OP 1, John Atkinson (joint School Dux), Simone de Nys (joint School Dux) and Sophie Horlock (School Captain).
Principal Mr Ian Gamack said “These results add to a very successful and memorable year for Cathedral students both in and outside of the classroom. However, none of this would have been possible without the considerable hard work from our dedicated and supportive staff and I thank them for all the assistance they have given our students to reach their potential in an environment that values excellence and a life-long commitment to learning.”
In 2017, 100 years after the opening of the school in 1917, The Cathedral School has seen its largest ever cohort of 129 Year 12 students graduate. When the school opened in 1917 as St Anne’s CEGS there was a total of 71 students enrolled. The Cathedral School is now a modern independent Anglican school providing first class education and personal development for students from Early Childhood to Year 12.
