Congratulations to the Clancy Catholic College Class of 2021 on achieving some outstanding HSC results! 

Our school climbed a staggering 133 positions to 81st in the Daily Telegrapg media rankings (calculated using the ratio of the number of Band 6 results to the number of exams sat by the school).

Clancy recorded 193 Distinguished Achievements, 11 All Rounders and two Top Achievers, while one student, Tony Khattar, was awarded First in Course in the Construction Examination.

David Fetterplace, Principal of Clancy Catholic College, said he was extremely impressed with the efforts of Year 12. 

I cannot tell you how proud I am of the 2021 HSC students who achieved so much despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 epidemic,” Mr Fetterplace said. 

“I am equally proud of our dedicated, hard working and professional staff who worked with students and families to gain such amazing results.

“Special congratulations to our English and Mathematics faculties for their wonderful results – they outperformed many selective and private schools across the state.”

To cap off an incredible 2021, 18 Sydney Catholic Schools ranked among the top 150 high schools and confirmed its reputation as one of the top performing systems of schools in Australia. 

Sydney Catholic Schools’ unprecedented academic success saw its schools reach new heights with the number of distinguished achievers rising from 2486 in 2019 and 2511 in 2020 to 3115 in 2021.

“To the class of 2021, we extend our heartfelt congratulations and admiration,” Sydney Catholic Schools’ Executive Director, Tony Farley, said.

The results follow a series of ground-breaking HSC excellence initiatives that involved all 33 secondary schools meeting to share and analyse HSC performance data, identify key strategies for achieving academic success and find ways to share resources and opportunities across our 33 schools sitting the HSC. 

“Our system-wide approach to excellence means that every student and teacher has access to a huge range of resources and experiences that a large system like ours can provide,” Sydney Catholic Schools Director of Education and Research, Dr Kate O’Brien, said.
