We can be very proud of the Year 12 students from 2018. Our boys within the ATAR and alternative pathways programmes have done extremely well and have certainly made Hale and no doubt their parents very proud.
Just under half (47%) of our ATAR students are in the top 10% of the nation and a third are in the top 5% of the nation. The fact that Hale continues to have one of the highest numbers of (or percentages) of ATAR students in the State underlines our focus on providing a strong academic education for a variety of boys.
“The truth is that our school continues to gain some of the best results in the State, we gain significant numbers of exhibitions and awards, and we continue to be the top scoring school in many (in 2018, it was 13) subjects,” said Headmaster, Dean Dell’Oro. “And we do all of this while providing and maintaining a culture whereby our boys participate and excel in a broad range of co-curricular programmes.”
In 2018 the median ATAR for Hale was 89.40 and 81.80 for WA.
