2017 VCE ReSULTS
We congratulate the Class of 2017 on their achievements in the Victorian Certificate of Education examinations.
In 2017, excellent results were achieved across the range of humanities, sciences, information technology and business studies subjects.
Huntingtower, which is not an academically selective school, was ranked in the top 5 co-educational schools and 6th overall in Victoria in 2017, with a median study score of 37. These results give our students excellent opportunities to achieve tertiary offers in the courses of their choice. Huntingtower has a balance of academically and practically oriented courses designed to provide entry into a wide spectrum of tertiary study or employment.
For the past 14 years, every student applying has received a tertiary offer.
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
We are extremely proud of the wonderful achievements of our 2017 graduates in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). Seven percent of students achieved Australian Tertiary Admission Rankings of over 99. Thirty-two percent of Huntingtower students received ATAR scores of over 95, placing them in the top 5% of Victoria. Forty-nine per cent of students were in the top 10% of the state, receiving ATAR scores of 90 and above.
A Study Score of 40 or more means that a student is in the top 9% of all students studying that subject – at Huntingtower, 30% of students’ results were over 40.
Once again, our VCE results confirm that Huntingtower is one of the most outstanding schools in Australia.

Psychology, Studio Arts
We congratulate our Dux, Alexandra Rafail, who achieved 2 perfect scores (50) in Psychology and Studio Arts. Other perfect scores were achieved in Business Management (Denis Lyn), Further Mathematics (Henry Lai and David Li) and Media (Stefan Sakellaridis). Two other students who did not wish their names to be published achieved perfect scores in Psychology and Further Mathematics.
Huntingtower continues to achieve outstanding results in the National Assessment Platform – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) Tests. Students in all levels tested (Years 3, 5, 7 and 9) remain above the national stand in these annual tests.
Detailed NAPLAN results are available on the ‘MySchool’ website.
