Collaboratively our young men and teaching staff have worked with focus and diligence to achieve remarkable results with the highlights below:

  • 132 boys, out of 236, gained at least 1 Band 6.
  • English, Languages and Visual Arts Departments produced their highest total number of Band 6 results on record.
  • The following courses produced their highest number of Band 6 results on record: Ancient History, English Advanced, Chinese Continuers, Chinese Literature and German (equal highest).
  • Visual Arts produced their highest number (7) of ARTEXPRESS nominations on record.
  • English Department has achieved two state rankings, the first since 2005.
  • Languages Department has achieved State Rankings for each of the last three consecutive years.
  • A strong number of nominations for subjects with practical components for possible inclusion in displays or performance next year: Design and Technology (1), Drama (16), Industrial Technology (9), Music (3) and Visual Arts (7).
  • The School remained in the Top 50 based on the State Rankings (as published by The Sydney Morning Herald).

The mark of a Kingsman is a young man who has applied himself to all the academic and co-curricular opportunities available at King’s, enabling him to graduate ready to contribute broadly to society and make a difference.

At King’s, we will continue to focus on preparing young men for life.

On behalf of the School community, I would like to wish our Year 12 Kingsmen the very best for their future endeavours and we look forward to hearing about their successes in the coming years.
