2021 Top Schools

We extract data on high performing schools. This analysis is based on the results of the school's top five students from each of Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. We use this method so that we do not disadvantage schools which enter whole Years, compared with schools which only enter their best students. The top schools in each state and the combined territories each receive a book voucher and special certificate. In 2021 the prize-winning schools were:
