Pittwater House NAPLAN 2016 The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual assessment for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 comprised of tests that cover reading, writing, language conventions and numeracy (data, measurement, space and geometry, number patterns and algebra). In 2016, our results continued to be impressive with the majority of our students demonstrating advancement. Pittwater House has a strong focus on academic growth and improving the individual performance of each student. We believe that the true measure of success is the value added to each student’s results as they progress through their education.

While many of our Year 7 students only had the benefit of being educated at Pittwater House for a few months prior to the NAPLAN assessment, we are very proud of their results. In all areas of assessment they exceeded the performance of students in State Schools and in most areas matched or exceeded other Australian Independent Schools. Reading
