Academic Results

Our girls consistently achieve formidable results in the HSC and IB Diploma, reflecting the quality of teaching and deep culture of learning at Queenwood.

We are academically non-selective and yet our results reliably place us in the top few such schools in the State.

We congratulate those who have achieved outstanding results as judged against their peers, and equally those who have achieved outstanding results as judged against themselves. Our students gain entry to a wide range of courses at universities and institutions in Australia and overseas, and examinations are important as a passport to further inspiring possibilities.

"I am so grateful for Queenwood’s genuinely supportive community and strong academic environment, led by the staff and embraced by the girls. "

In undertaking the IB diploma at Queenwood, I was encouraged to take academic risks and think critically about global issues, instilling in me a desire for knowledge that went beyond any prescribed syllabus. This was particularly apparent in my study of Higher-Level Mathematics, where my teacher routinely emphasised the importance of deeply understanding the foundation and justification of mathematical concepts, even where the syllabus may have only called for a superficial understanding of an idea; this approach helped me develop a love for the subject, as well as tangibly improving my performance in examinations. Queenwood’s emphasis on extra-curricular opportunities played a formative role in my high school experience, with activities such as Tildesley tennis and music ensembles helping me express myself in different ways and form lasting friendships.

"Queenwood has inspired me to do my part to make the world a better place."

Olivia_Loukas_358px_Circle.png

I started in Year 7 as an unsure and shy 12-year-old, and now leave as an 18-year-old feeling empowered and inspired to make a difference in the world. Queenwood has provided me with the most comprehensive education I could have possibly hoped for, exposing me to a broad variety of subjects and interests and continuously supporting my studies throughout COVID-19. The global nature of the IB has led me to adopt a holistic view of the world and made me appreciate the fortunate life I lead, further encouraging me to support others without the same advantage. As a Social Justice Prefect I organised Harmony Day celebrations to promote multiculturalism and recognise Indigenous culture; I coordinated and addressed the audience on Respect Day which focused on consent and relationships; and I plan to continue working with the community, hopefully in the fields of Medicine or Diplomacy. Thank you to Queenwood for making me a better person by teaching me to listen respectfully and understand how to contribute.  Per Aspera ad Astra – Through Struggles to the Stars.

"My teachers held an immense passion for their subject, instilling a similar drive in me to reach my potential and extract the most from each and every lesson."

The IB syllabus at Queenwood equipped me with a greater understanding of global socio-political concerns and, above all, gave me the skills and desire to apply my knowledge in seeking solutions for the future. Each of my teachers held an immense passion for their subject, instilling a similar drive in me to reach my potential and extract the most from each and every lesson – I cannot thank them enough. The IB courses encouraged me to view complex global issues from varying perspectives, whether it be French, Environmental Systems and Societies or Language and Literature. I particularly enjoyed Queenwood debating, where participating in ISDA and the NSW representative Archdale team related knowledge from my studies to complex, current, topical issues – something I continue to do as I embark on my tertiary study. I am excited for the future and so thankful for all those who have supported me along the way.

"Within and outside of the classroom, I formed invaluable connections to teachers, coaches and students across all year groups and the Queenwood community."

The experiences, relationships and opportunities provided to me by Queenwood have undoubtedly shaped my perspectives. Within and outside of the classroom, I formed invaluable connections to teachers, coaches and students across all year groups and the  Queenwood community. Within this support network, I was able to laugh and learn from my mistakes, persevere through disappointment, develop a love for  challenge and dare to succeed without fear of failure. These lessons learnt in rowing boats, percussion ensembles and debating rooms, translated to the classroom and supported my studies. I am grateful to have participated in Queenwood’s community of driven young women. During my own younger years, I learned what a big difference one small conversation or kind gesture can make as older students mentored and guided me. As a community prefect, I found myself drawing from my own experiences of failure, success, apprehension and excitement when participating in something new. I was eager to receive advice, encouragement and understanding along the way. I hope to carry these values of Truth, Courage and Service and also collaboration into the next stages of my education.
