Past Student Achievements


2017 Academic Highlights

Our 2017 HSC and NAPLAN results demonstrated outstanding growth once again for the students of Patrician Brothers’ College Fairfield. We congratulate our young men in Years 12 and 9 on their performance in these external assessments.

The Year 12 class of 2017 performed incredibly well across a wide range of subjects. At a glance our students:

  • completed 789 HSC exams in total
  • sat examinations in 32 different subject areas
  • achieved 237 Band 5s and 6s - the top 2 bands of achievement
  • another 11 students achieved an E4 (equivalent to a Band 6) in extension subjects

A total of 33 students were listed on the HSC Distinguished Achievers List. To be included on this list a student must achieve a result of 90 or above in a specific HSC examination.

Our students are also to be congratulated for their Australian Tertiary Admission Ranks (ATARs). The ATAR is a number between 0.00 and 99.95 and indicates a student's position relative to other students.

This year we had a total of 9 students receive an ATAR above 90. The young men below are to be congratulated on their efforts and commended for their continued commitment to their studies over the last two years.

Our Year 9 and 7 students performed incredibly well in NAPLAN. A total of 192 Year 9 students sat NAPLAN assessments and over half of all boys achieved a Band 8, or higher. As a community we were able to show great growth in the areas of Writing, Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation with continued growth in Numeracy. Our students performed above state average in the areas of Grammar & Punctuation and Numeracy.

Regardless of the Bands or ATARs achieved and the performance in HSC examinations or NAPLAN assessments, many of our boys achieved their personal bests. A large number of our HSC students have already started their future careers with full-time employment, traineeships or apprenticeships.

We are incredibly proud of them all and wish them all the best for what we are certain will be bright futures!
