An opportunity for success

Ormiston College has a long-standing reputation as one of Queensland’s best performing schools. Consistently ranked in the state’s top 10 for NAPLAN results and graduate outcomes, the College continues to exceed expectations and our achievements are evidence of this.



As a key strategic priority for Ormiston College, we continually work to develop excellent foundations in literacy and numeracy across the campus for all students, aiming to achieve academic learning outcomes comparable to the highest performing schools (TOP 10) in Queensland, as evidenced by NAPLAN results. The 2021 combined result for Year 7 and Year 9 once again produced exceptional results, placing Ormiston College eighth in the State for NAPLAN outcomes.


Graduate Outcomes

In 2020, Queensland replaced its university entrance pathway for Year 12 students, from the Overall Position (OP), to that of the Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking (ATAR), allowing consistency throughout all States in Australia. Ormiston College was delighted with the result of the 2020 cohort who achieved outstanding first-ever ATAR scores. Four students were awarded a score of 99 or higher, 39% received a score of 90 or higher, 79% received scores of 70 or higher.

The results of the graduating Class of 2021 continue Ormiston College’s reputation as one of the best academic performing schools in Queensland. 100% of the cohort achieved an ATAR. More than half (50.5%) the students achieved a score of 90 or higher; Two students were awarded a score of 99 or higher and the median score was 90.05.

For the seventh year in a row, Ormiston College has been named one of Australia’s Most Innovative Schools.
