Brisbane Secondary School Results using OP data

To be updated with 2018 OP results VERY SOON – bookmark this page to come back to see how the cards fell after the 2018 results were released!

Secondary school ranking for Brisbane in 2017 is now available using OP results eg Year 12 results gained in 2017.  The rankings for Brisbane schools are extracted from Year 12 OP results.  Of course, pure academic results don’t tell the whole story about what makes a secondary school great.  Kids get so much more from school than simple academics, so if your school of choice isnt at the top of the leaderboard for these results, it doesnt mean that it isnt a great place to send your child. These are the stats for you to draw your own conclusions. This secondary school OP results table is a guide for parents but it’s NOT the be all and end all of choosing the right school for your child. They were drawn from the Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority.

Remember, this league table is only based on the % of students who received a OP Score of 1-5. Any league table based on any single outcome measure tells very little about the effectiveness of a school program or what students really get out of their 13 years at school. Such lists fail to recognise that a good education is more than just preparation for exams. Schools design their curriculum to meet the particular needs of their students and help them to reach their potential.
This table does not take into account the other ranges of OP scores – to see a larger sample with the range of OP Scores 1-15 (as well as all the IB results) read the rest of the article and then click here.

Catchment, School Reviews and other Brisbane school information

Map of Brisbane school catchment areas

Many state primary and secondary schools in Brisbane have a catchment limitation.  This means that if you’re not in the area, you’re not in the school!  Learn more about primary & secondary school catchments here. Families Magazine also provides Parent Fact Sheets on top schools in the Brisbane area which give an overview of many primary and secondary schools – visit our schools & education articles to find all the information you need when considering a school for your child. If you’re considering a school that doesn’t have a factsheet, please comment below – we’ll get right on it!

Again, just because these are the top performing secondary schools in Brisbane, doesn’t mean that your secondary school isn’t a wonderful match for your child!  Secondary school rankings only rate one area of school life! At Families Magazine, we believe that education is a life long journey, not a test result!

Phasing Out the OP Score in Queensland

Did you know? The Queensland Government has delayed its phasing out OP Scores. Now the new system will begin with students entering Year 11 in 2019, not 2018 as previously planned. In 2019 the Queensland Government will introduce new senior assessment and tertiary entrance systems.

Find out about how the new system will affect your child by reading our detailed article here.
