Academic results

Ascham warmly congratulates the Class of 2022 on their outstanding HSC results. Our students’ steadfast commitment to learning, teamed with the tireless dedication of their teachers, has produced results of which each student should be very proud. Our educational framework, the Dalton Plan, supports Ascham students every step of the way, encouraging critical thinking, independence, reflection, and great collaboration between peers and teachers.

Why the HSC at Ascham?

For Ascham, the reasons for aligning with the HSC lie largely in the Dalton Plan. Its structure promotes learning that develops critical thinking, project-based learning, independent research and metacognitive reflection, and these attributes frame the HSC curriculum well.

The syllabus documents also align with our approach to teaching beyond the curriculum and building academic enrichment of girls. We can embed breadth and depth in all subject areas to ensure they are taught at the highest level to all students and allow for introducing further extension as needed.

Just as importantly, we find that a single HSC cohort strengthens collaboration and support among our girls as they prepare for HSC exams and subsequent tertiary aspirations.

Outstanding results

As further testament to the power of the Dalton Plan, a high percentage of Ascham girls achieved marks in the top band across all subjects:

  • In 568 out of the 594 examinations, the girls achieved marks of 70% or above.

In the following courses, all girls achieved marks in the top band (above 90%):

  • History Extension
  • Music Extension
  • French Continuers

Ascham girls were enrolled in 29 different courses. In 14 of those, the entire cohort achieved a mark of 80% or above. 

These are exceptional results from a group of committed students who showed the benefit of working consistently through their HSC year, and a clear indication of the academic strengths at Ascham and the ongoing success of the Dalton Plan.

Congratulations go to all teachers who have worked closely with these students, to their Year Coordinators Mrs Carolyn Heinz and Ms Stephanie Newby, who understood their individual strengths and encouraged them to strive for academic excellence, and to each Head of Department for developing curriculum initiatives to enhance the results of the girls.

Hearty congratulations from all of us to the Class of 2022.
