Our latest academic results

In 2021, 4% of our Class of 2021 were in the top 1% of the State achieving an ATAR of 99 plus. To have achieved what they have while having to continually pivot from online to onsite learning is a testament to their grit, drive, optimism and resilience. It is quite remarkable really. We congratulate the entire Kilvington community for their commitment to the health and wellbeing of our Year 12 cohort. Many members restricted their movements in the lead up to the exams to help in the endeavor to keep the School open during the critical exam period. For that we are incredibly grateful.


Congratulations to Ben Churilov and Jake Fitzgerald for achieving an ATAR of 99.90, becoming joint Duces of the School. We would also like to congratulate Arianna Hearst for achieving an ATAR of 99.15. 

Well done to the students who achieved perfect scores of 50 in English, Further Mathematics and Psychology.


While we do not offer the IB program at Kilvington, students can still qualify for the VCE-Baccalaureate based on their VCE results.

The eligibility requirements to receive the VCE-Baccalaureate are as follows:-

  • a Units 3 and 4 sequence in English or Literature with a study score of 30 or above; 
  • or a Units 3 and 4 sequence in EAL with a study score of 33 or above, plus
  • a Units 3 and 4 sequence in either Mathematical Methods or Specialist Mathematics, plus
  • a Units 3 and 4 sequence in a VCE Language, and
  • at least two other Units 3 and 4 sequences.

In 2021, 14 of our students qualified for a VCE-Baccalaureate –  20% of the Year 12 cohort.


Annually the Government conducts the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) – which assesses Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 across Australia. The NAPLAN maps each student’s outcomes onto a ten-band continuum, and results are reported against national minimum standards which are Year 3 Band 2, Year 5 Band 4, Year 7 Band 5 and Year 9 Band 6.

The following table reflects Kilvington’s summary report at Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 for each of the areas tested for NAPLAN 2021: Reading, Writing, Language Conventions – Spelling, Language Conventions – Grammar and Punctuation, and Numeracy.

We certainly appreciate each student’s hard work and effort in delivering their best on the day under these test conditions. The tests provide parents and schools with an understanding of how individual students are performing at the time of the tests. They are just one aspect of a school’s assessment process and by no means replace the ongoing formative and summative feedback and assessment cycle made by teachers within the classroom for student learning growth and progress.

The standard of academics at Kilvington is outstanding. Students are encouraged to problem solve, self-manage, make mistakes and experience discomfort in a very supportive environment. They are taught to own both their failures and achievements,and are provided with appropriate feedback from teachers in a respectful way.
