Brisbane Secondary School Results using OP data
Secondary school ranking for Brisbane in 2020 is now available using OP results eg Year 12 results gained in 2019. 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 isn’t one to the top schools in Brisbane based on THIS leaderboard for these results, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t a great place to send your child.
These are the statistics 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.
The results you see below were drawn from the Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority. It is a large document and we have taken only a small amount of the data to display here so it is easy to understand.
You can use the link to the QCAA to dig deeper into all of the Queensland results and find the results you need for schools outside greater Brisbane as those are not collated on our list. We have only collated greater Brisbane schools data, you will find the WHOLE of Queensland on that link.

Catchment, School Reviews and other Brisbane school information
Many state primary and secondary schools in Brisbane have a catchment limitation. This means that if you’re not in the area, you’re likely not in the school! Learn more about primary & secondary school catchments here.
Families Magazine also provides Parent Fact Sheets on top schools in the greater 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 fact sheet, 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!
What’s the difference between the OP rank and ATAR?
The ATAR is a finer-grained rank order of students than the OP and is commonly used in other states and territories. It’s a number between 0.00 and 99.95 with increments of 0.05, whereas the OP consists of 25 bands. The Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) will be responsible for calculating students’ ATARs.
