NAPLAN 2018 review: Top performing schools in Mosman (Area)

Published January 2020

This article uses data from the 2018 school year, as published on

NAPLAN tests are conducted in schools, with each state and territory responsible for marking the tests in accordance with strict guidelines and processes.

The results add value to teacher assessments by showing how their students’ achievements compare to a wider group of students across Australia.

NAPLAN results also allow:

  • teachers to better identify students who require greater challenges or additional support
  • schools to identify strengths and weaknesses in teaching and learning programs and to set goals in literacy and numeracy.

It’s important to note that NAPLAN results are just one aspect of schools’ assessment and reporting process and do not replace the extensive ongoing assessments that teachers conduct to measure each student’s performance.

We take a look at the top schools by average NAPLAN score in  MERGEFIELD REGION Mosman (Area),  MERGEFIELD STATE NSW, which consists of eight schools.
