The Higher School Certificate results of our Class of 2021 are something that we are celebrating and incredibly proud of. All NSW 2021 HSC candidates are to be congratulated for the incredible resilience they displayed as they navigated two years of a global pandemic that impacted the continuity of their learning and their participation in many of the rites of passage that would normally be associated with the conclusion of high school.

St Augustine’s College is a comprehensive boys’ school that has evolved a cultural intensity around personal achievement. Within themselves, our graduates have each found the ability to challenge themselves to improve and to achieve. Across the complexity of learning in the COVID-19 context, be it from their lounge room or the classroom, they have been ably supported by committed families and staff in maintaining focus, practice, and sustained effort.

Academic Improvement

St Augustine's College is one of the fastest improving schools over the past 10 years.

We are incredibly proud of the young men who strived for near perfect scores and the five students who achieved an ATAR over 99. We are, however, just as proud of the students who moved from Band 3 to Band 4 and, of course, the many boys who have achieved Band 5 and above. These boys are not numbers in the league table, they are young men who have committed themselves with diligence and effort to their personal best. They are now able to pursue pathways of their choice whether this is their first preference to university, an upgraded preference as a result of a better than anticipated mark or securing an apprenticeship as a result of demonstrating that they can commit and achieve.

The College continues to see incredible diversity in our academic success with students nominated and selected for OnSTAGE as well as four students placing in the top 10 in the state in Mathematics, Drama, English Extension, and Engineering.

“The Year 12 students at St Augustine's College demonstrated enormous resilience and hope despite challenges faced throughout the year and restrictions to so many of the celebrations and significant rites of passage of school completion. Congratulations to the Class of 2021, their families, and the teaching staff on this year's excellent Higher School Certificate results. This has been a remarkable collaborative effort in what was a challenging year for everyone.”
