Outstanding NAPLAN Results in “The Nation’s Top Schools” 

Every year, all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in Australian schools undertake compulsory testing in literacy and numeracy. These tests are known as NAPLAN (National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy). For the past four years, The Weekend Australian newspaper has undertaken a national analysis of the results. We are again delighted with our results.

For the fourth year in a row (2012-2015), our Primary students have achieved 1st place in Western Australia and 14th Place in Australia. Over the same time period, our Secondary students have been placed 3rd, 6th, 4th and 17th in Western Australia and 18th in Australia.

 (NB: There are approximately 9,500 schools in Australia)

2015 Analysis

• The Nation's Top 100 Primary Schools: ISWA achieved 1st place in Western Australia, 14th place in Australia.
• The Nation's Top 100 Secondary Schools: ISWA achieved 17th place in Western Australia, 18th place in Australia.

As a small school, we have to be mindful as to how we interpret the results of ISWA students in the NAPLAN tests. For example, in a small school, one or two students who achieve very high or very low results can have a much more dramatic effect on the average score than would be the case in a larger school. Nevertheless, ISWA students have consistently achieved outstanding results in the NAPLAN tests. For such a young, small school we are very proud of these results.
