We are delighted to share with you the outstanding achievements of our Year 12 students who completed the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) in 2020, with 11% of all St Peter’s College students achieving an ATAR of 99 or above. A median ATAR of 90.2 was achieved.

In particular, we acknowledge and congratulate the following students for achieving the highest possible ATAR of 99.95:

  • Oliver Kleinig (FRR)

We congratulate the following 34 students who earned a merit in one or more of their subjects. A merit is awarded to a student who the SACE Board deems to have demonstrated exceptional achievement in a subject. Attaining an A+ in a subject is a prerequisite but does not guarantee a merit; merits are reserved for the very best students in a subject.

The School is exceptionally proud of the way all Year 12 students have navigated not only their final year of schooling, but the additional challenges and uncertainty of 2020. Despite these difficulties the students have achieved extraordinary results.

Enormous agility has been demonstrated by our staff this year and we are incredibly grateful to the teachers, mentors, Heads of House and other staff who have journeyed with our Year 12s in what has been the most disruptive year in recent history. The students’ outstanding results are a testament to our vision to be an exceptional community of learning.

St Peter’s College looks forward to the publication of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results in early January 2021. Please note that a number of Year 12 SACE students undertook an IBDP subject as part of their study. As such, these students are yet to receive their final ATAR and so their results will change slightly in January. At this time the School will report on the combined results and announce the recipient of the Young Exhibition, for Dux of the School.
