Data released this week reveals The Geelong College has the highest percentage of 40+ study scores of all schools in the Geelong region.
The results are being released this week with the launch of Good Education Group’s The Good Schools Guide Victoria 2018.
Good Education Group, Melbourne’s largest provider of independent education data, releases the annual Good Schools Guide which comprehensively details nearly 600 schools across Victoria, including a breakdown of each school by sector, academic performance, tuition fees and curriculum.
“It’s a great achievement for The Geelong College to top the list with the highest percentage of 40+ study scores of all schools in the Geelong area”, said Chris Lester, CEO of Good Education Group.
“What we’ve seen in the data is that you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money to get a quality education. Across the state, there’s a great mix of government and non-government schools all achieving a high percentage of 40+ study scores”, he said.
“Though the lists are important, this Guide isn’t solely developed to determine which are the ‘best’ schools in Victoria”, Mr Lester said.
Rather, he said, “it’s a tool to increase people’s understanding of the Victorian education system and help parents make an informed decision about the best school for their family.”
Mr Lester said Good Education Group encourages parents to do their research before selecting a school. “We believe that parents have to choose the school that is the right fit for their child”, he said.
Top 5 Geelong schools, percentage of 40+ study scores:
- The Geelong College
