An analysis of NAPLAN results has revealed that Clayfield College Year 9 student scores improved the most out of all the Brisbane North schools over the last five years.
The analysis compared each school’s combined results for every NAPLAN subject in 2015 and compared them to the same results in 2019.
Significantly, the average Year 9 results at Clayfield increased by 3.1 per cent, which was the biggest improvement of all the schools across Brisbane North.
Clayfield’s Principal Mrs Kathy Bishop said the College’s improvement was testament to the strength of its programs delivered by high quality teaching staff.
‘The work we have done in the areas of literacy and numeracy provide us data to further refine our evidence-based programs,’ Mrs Bishop said.
‘Thoughtful interrogation of NAPLAN and other data, allows us to establish a greater understanding of the needs of a specific cohort and to identify students in need of extension or targeted instruction.’
‘Extra rigour is always implemented in our programs to challenge the girls and encourage excellence.’
‘I would like to acknowledge the dedication and ability of our teaching staff who have provided exceptional opportunities for learning and academic growth, not only in their specific subject but also in the areas of literacy and numeracy.’
