2021. What a year!
We are so proud of the achievements of all our students in 2021. The class of 2021 were the first cohort to complete their whole VCE in a global pandemic, and time after time they amazed us with their determination, adaptability and genuine support for each other. One of our VCE teachers said to me the other day that the class mantra going into their exam was ‘just keep writing’: this could well be a metaphor for the cohort’s efforts over the last two years.
We are pleased with every student’s results today: they are a credit to the hard work of these young people and their teachers throughout their time at University High School, and exemplify excellence through continued growth. Our results represent the efforts of students through a total of 1659 Study Scores across 32 subjects. 270 students in the 2021 cohort applied for an ATAR. We know that these results tell just a fraction of the stories of our resilient, curious and creative Year 12s, but we have plenty to celebrate and we look forward to the release of tertiary offers in January.
Some highlights include:
Of our students in the Elizabeth Blackburn Sciences program, 44 (32% of that cohort) achieved an ATAR of 90+
In 2021 UHS performed strongly against state measures. 18 of our subjects recorded mean study scores above the state average.
Our highest Median Study Scores represented the breadth and depth of our school. They were found in:
|English as an Additional Language||Studio Arts|
The following subjects had 20% or more of their students achieving study scores of 40+:
|Product Design and Technology||Studio Arts|
|Music Performance||Visual Communication and Design|
21 UHS subjects had higher than the state threshold for scores of 40 and above.
A number of subjects had an increased Median and/or Mean Study Score from 2020. These included:
|Health and Human Relationships||Literature||Latin|
Congratulations to all our students and teachers on your incredible accomplishments this year, and thank you to our families and broader community for your support and guidance.
UHS has acquired access to an important resource hub for Wellbeing of students and parents.
Today parents face a multitude of modern day challenges in raising happy, well and resilient young people. Whilst there is a great deal of information available, this can often be confusing and overwhelming for parents looking for guidance.
SchoolTV addresses this as a new online resource designed to empower you as parents with credible and sound information with realistic, practical ongoing support strategies.
