Annual Reports

Commonwealth and State Governments require all state and non-state schools to publish an Annual Report on a variety of dimensions of school performance for the previous year. These documents appear below and may be downloaded. The reports represent a facts and figures approach without much acknowledgement of what The School of Total Education would see as the more important dimensions of school achievement and should be read with that in mind.
