VCE Results 2020

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

From the Principal:

I would like to congratulate all of our Trinity Grammar, Kew students on their achievements this year. Despite disruptions, they can be proud of the extraordinary results that indicate their commitment to their studies and schooling. These results are among our school’s best ever and reflect impressive work ethic and perseverance.

Duces William Browning and Andrew Lim achieved perfect ATARs of 99.95, and a total of 21 students scored ATARs of 99 and above, placing them in the top 1% of all students in the country. Impressively, 49% of all students achieved ATARs over 90.

A total of eleven perfect scores of 50 were achieved across a range of subjects.

By their nature, Trinity students are aspirational. Many will have reached or exceeded their goals, while some will undoubtedly be disappointed. Nonetheless, all have achieved and will be able to move towards further learning and careers with the knowledge that they are very well prepared.

Congratulations to all teaching and support staff who have ensured our students have been looked after and have been able to develop amidst the challenges of 2020. The partnerships between school and families was strengthened further during a year that could have threatened them. Regardless of their ATAR number, we can all be proud of the young men who have emerged during their Trinity years and now go out into the world with opportunity to apply all of their learning.
