Academic Results

Palmerston Senior College offers a comprehensive and balanced educational experience and provides pathways for students to make the most of their individual potential. As a result, our students consistently achieve academic results that we are proud of.

Our focus on refining our programs and pathways has seen an impressive upward trend in our results.

More importantly, improvements have been seen across the board, with our average ATAR score increasing by over 20 points in the last two years.

As our focus is on connecting every student to their preferred post-schooling pathway, VET courses are also pivotal at PSC, with 43% of our graduates completing a VET course as part of their studies in 2013.

We have seen a 19% increase in students achieving their NTCET between 2010-2013, a figure that is 17% above target. We are also really proud of the outstanding results of our indigenous students. In 2013 we saw a 100% increase in NTCET completion and a 5% increase in enrolments.

The upward trend in our results speak for themselves. We work to ensure that, no matter the education pathway chosen, every student is given the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve their individual goals and potential.
