Academic Results

At Good Shepherd we are very proud of the academic achievements of our students.

Over the years, we have achieved excellent outcomes in standardised testing such as NAPLAN, University of New South Wales testing, as well as outstanding Year 12 OP results. Our students have also had great success in academic based competitions such as Tournament of Minds, robotics and debating. While we recognise that not all achievements can be measured through testing and competitions, we are keen to encourage those students who are interested in pursuing these opportunities.
