Academic Pathways

Calrossy has consistently been the best performing school in the New England and North West in the HSC.

In recent years in the HSC the School has had students top the State in Music and Primary Industries, with others placing in the top ten students within NSW across a range of subjects from Physics, Biology and Agriculture.

As part of our commitment to success at every stage, for every student, Calrossy offers support and extension for identified students. Differentiation is used in all classrooms to ensure that children are working to their ability level and building upon previously gained knowledge and skills. 

Opportunities exist for those who require extension to move beyond classroom learning and take part in more rigorous academic pathways such as competitions, Maths camps, Science tournaments and activities.  Our students are also given the chance to develop and expand their leadership, academic, co-curricular strengths and interests, through school and inter-school competitions in areas such as debating, public speaking and science. 

Meantime, our Independent Learning Centre has dedicated teachers for those boys and girls requiring assistance with their work, both in and out of the classroom setting.

Did you know?

  • In 2022, approximately 80% of the 67 year 12 students who applied for University or other tertiary level courses were successful with their applications and accepted offers before the first December Round of offers based on ATAR calculations. Most students received early offers based on their year 11 results and the effort they made throughout their important Preliminary HSC and some school recommendations based on character, academic effort and their potential to make a successful school to tertiary transition.
  • Almost 100% of our students who apply for various University courses will be successful with entering a course of their choosing. Some will decide to continue the year after their HSC, some others will choose to defer and then take up their chosen course 6 or 12 months and sometimes 2 years after leaving school. 

  • A fun fact, over the past 4 years, around 79% of all Calrossy students who have applied for courses for Universities or other tertiary institutions have received offers before they sit their HSC.    

How our unique model benefits students in the classroom everyday.
