The Lakes College’s 2016 graduating class of Year 12 students have achieved outstanding OP results, affirming the College’s mission to provide excellence in education, and reflecting our high quality of teaching.

College Principal Mr Simon Armstrong shared news with the College community, stating that “we are thrilled with the academic results of our 2016 graduating class. Our fourth cohort of graduates has again performed exceptionally well, with The Lakes College recognised as one of Queensland’s Top 10 OP Schools for 2016.
Strong OP results do not happen by chance at The Lakes College. Students at the College are subject to a level of academic support that is second to none. Whether it be the ease through which all staff are accessible, to the range of programs available, or our comprehensive QCS Program, students find themselves within a strong, academic environment conducive to success.
Throughout 2017 we will continue to maintain our focus on helping every child to achieve their potential in joyful and supportive surroundings.”
While we recognise our students who achieved such strong OP scores, an excellent education incorporates both academic success and a focus on exposing young people to opportunity and broadening their horizons. The Lakes College remains committed to strong academic management and will continue to support those students who choose alternative pathways to tertiary education; this reflects the diversity of our student body and the College’s commitment to personalising each student’s learning pathway.
