At Emmanuel College the investments in our Centres of Excellence for Science, Performing and Visual Arts are ensuring our NAPLAN and Yr 12 OP results are significantly above State averages and National Benchmarks.

National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy Results (NAPLAN)

  • The results of the NAPLAN testing at Emmanuel College for each of the year cohorts are well above State averages and the National Benchmarks. The whole school community celebrates the standard achieved by these year level cohorts.
  • As a school with a non-selective academic enrolment policy, Emmanuel College could reasonably expect these results to more or less mirror the State level expectations, or even go down from time to time because of swings in smaller population numbers. However, the results are consistently and significantly higher, not lower.
  • The benefits of a strong academic program introduced in the Preparatory classes are reflected in the performance of our children.

In 2018, Australian schools undertook the 11th year of testing under the National Assessment program in Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN). The national tests assess the skills of all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 in reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy. Students from all state and non-state schools across Australia take part in these national literacy and numeracy tests in May of each year.

We were very pleased with our results in the tests and a graphic summary follows. Emmanuel College was ranked 31 in Queensland, 3rd of the Gold Coast Primary Schools and 5th Top Performing High School.
