External Academic Opportunities

Every  year St Pius students enter into a range of external assessments and competitions. These further develop academic skills. The results are used by the College as a diagnostic tool to benchmark students with their peers across the state and country.



All students in Years 5-10 participate in the UNSW Reach Assessments in English, Mathematics and Science

These annual progression assessments measure full cohort progress year on year and provide an external, objective benchmark of learner progress.

Other external academic opportunities include:

  • ACER PATR – Junior School
