All Saints’ College celebrates diverse ‘Leading School’ status

In addition to celebrating the fact that our Year 12 (2018) Dux, Aron Thian, was also the second highest achieving WACE student in Western Australia, All Saints’ College is celebrating our ‘leading school’ status across the broadest range of subjects, to date.

‘Leading school’ status is awarded to schools based on the percentage of students whose marks are in the top 15% of all students taking that course across Western Australia.

We are proud to announce that, in 2018, All Saints’ College achieved ‘leading school’ status in*:

  • Biology
  • Computer Science
  • Dance
  • Drama
  • Geography
  • Integrated Science
  • Mathematics Applications
  • Mathematics Methods
  • Mathematics Specialist
  • Modern History
  • Physics
  • Politics and Law
  • Psychology

(*NB: To be eligible for ‘leading school’ status, schools must have at least ten students enrolled in that course. It is important to note here that, in keeping with our commitment to meeting our diverse student population’s interests and needs, in 2018 All Saints’ ran 18 Year 12 courses, including 10 ATAR courses, with fewer than ten students. Thus, we are not able to include those courses in our ‘leading school’ subject list.)

Principal, Ms Belinda Provis, said that the breadth of ASC’s ‘leading school’ recognition reflects the diversity of choice provided at All Saints’.

“The provision of this breadth of choice is an important way in which the College supports its diverse student population,” Ms Provis said.

“At All Saints’, we believe there are about as many definitions of success as there are students at the College. To be as inclusive as possible, therefore, the College seeks to provide as diverse and rich course offering as it can.”
