Student Achievement in NT Independent Schools

Year 12 students in Northern Territory Independent Schools graduate at a higher rate than students in other schools, and are significantly more likely to achieve elite results. 

In 2016, our schools educated 22 per cent of Year 12 students across the Northern Territory – but produced 10 of the top 20 NTCET students, plus the student with the Territory’s top ATAR score, who studied the International Baccalaureate.

We are particularly proud of the way our schools nurture and support students. High academic achievement goes hand in hand with student wellbeing, holistic education and access to excellence at secondary providers Good Shepherd Lutheran College, Haileybury Rendall School, Marrara Christian College, St Philip’s College, The Essington School Darwin, Tiwi College and Yirara College.

We thank the dedicated teachers, school leaders and community members who work so hard to make this happen. Most of all, congratulations to our families who choose Northern Territory Independent Schools, and our hard working Year 12s who dare to aim high.
