Academic Results

Whitsunday Anglican School is a non-selective school. We continue to be proud of our reputation for academic excellence with results across all year levels that are above state and national averages.


In May this year, our Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 students sat for the compulsory National Assessment Program on Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) for all Australian students. Our excellent results are testimony to the exemplary teaching practices and the well-constructed curriculum we offer at Whitsunday Anglican School. Our students out-performed their National and State counterparts consistently in all aspects of the tests.

While NAPLAN is only one piece of assessment that gives a snapshot of your child on a particular day, the data provided through this testing tool is valuable in assisting the school to further refine our curriculum and be responsive to students’ collective and individual needs.

Congratulations to our teachers and students for these strong literacy and numeracy results as we continue to focus on these foundation skills and provide a well-rounded education at Whitsunday Anglican School.
