Class of 2023 ATAR and academic results

For the 2023 cohort of Year 12 students, the ATAR results are a culmination of 13 years of schooling. The Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School including Ipswich Junior Grammar School community are extremely proud of our Year 12 cohort’s outstanding achievements. We all know academic results are only one part of the broader landscape of education. Yet, the ATAR score demonstrates a significant moment in our students’ academic journey.

As with any success in life, achieving high levels of academic attainment takes concerted effort, necessitates organised discipline, and requires ongoing resilience. We commend our students for consistently demonstrating the school values of diligence, excellence, and integrity.

The School would also like to recognise the role our teaching staff play in supporting our students during their educational experience at the School. In addition, our students’ success depends on family and close friends’ support. It is indeed a team effort.

  • 90% of our Year 12 cohort were ATAR eligible.
  • 5% received an ATAR greater than or equal to 99, placing them in the top 1% in Queensland.
  • 22% of students received an ATAR greater than or equal to 95.
  • 44% achieved 90 or greater.
  • 82% achieved 80 or greater.
  • The median ATAR is 88.80.

The 2023 Miss Tatham’s Memorial Prize for Dux of the School was awarded to Sophie Richardson. Sophie achieved an ATAR of 99.60 and has accepted an early offer to study a Bachelor of Engineering (Honors) at Queensland University of Technology. Second in Year 12, a Gift of the Brisbane of Branch of the Old Girls Association, will be awarded to Sienna Tyrer with an ATAR of 99.40.

Students achieved perfect scores in 9 external assessments, and 19 students completed and passed University subjects.

Many students were offered early university places in study areas including Communication, Information Technology, Nursing, Business, Fine Art, Film Production, Paramedicine Engineering, Occupational Therapy, International Relations, Forensic Science, Music, and Agriculture.

11 students also achieved Vocational Education Training Certificates in conjunction with their ATAR or Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). This means students leave school with work-ready skills, enabling them to seek employment or further training. This year, we had our first two Deadly Start Traineeship students, Relna Hosea and Pauleeja Mau, graduate with a Certificate III in Health Services Assistance.

100% of our IGGS Seniors have attained a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) or a Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA).

Today, we celebrate the achievements of many fine young people who have demonstrated the attitudes, attributes, and skills to be the best versions of themselves.

As they begin an exciting new chapter in life, we wish them all the best on their future journeys.
