Why Fairholme

The academic reputation of the College goes from strength to strength, with our students continuing to excel across all academic fields.

Over the past five years our students have distinguished themselves by achieving outstanding OP results. Their individual commitment to high academic standards, demonstrated through diligence and perseverance, is noteworthy and sets a fine benchmark for their peers.

Fairholme OP percentile bands for 2016

The OP (Overall Position) score is used solely for tertiary education admission. It reflects each student’s position in a Queensland-wide ranking order of overall achievement in Queensland Studies Authority-approved subjects. Overall positions range from an OP1 (the highest) through to an OP25.

Fairholme QCS percentile bands for 2016

The QCS (Queensland Core Skills Test) is a common state-wide test designed for Year 12 students which contributes information for the calculation of Overall Positions (OPs) and Field Positions (FPs) and is used to rank students for tertiary entrance.

These results are representative of commitment and hard work both individually and as a whole cohort as well as reflecting the strong educational and pastoral support that is provided by a professional and dedicated teaching staff.

At Fairholme we celebrate both participation and excellence, individual achievement of the highest calibre and standard, and all that can be achieved through the joy and collaboration of team work.
