WELCOME TO AITKEN COLLEGE

Aitken College is a co-educational, independent Uniting Church school catering for families living in the northwest region of Melbourne. It provides a traditional curriculum from Foundation to Year 12 with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy.

There is a firm commitment to encourage students to use their expanding knowledge as a basis for investigation, problem solving, critical thinking and creativity. The 18.5 hectare site offers immense potential for a diverse and imaginative curriculum.

In 2014, 115 students completed their VCE, 11 completed their VCE (Baccalaureate) and 2 students completed their VCAL certificates.

Congratulations to Adrian Constantino who achieved an ATAR score of 99.3 and is the 2014 College Dux, placing him in the top 1% of students in the state. Other students who achieved scores of 90 or above and permitted for these to be published are:

Amber Colin 94.95

Trent McGuire 94.85

Sean Samson 94.5

Andrew Pagnucco 92.4

Alycia Manuel 91.05

Shaun Adams 90

7.1% of students achieved an ATAR above 90 and 60% of the VCE cohort achieved an ATAR above 60. The median ATAR for all students was 64.4, with girls achieving a median ATAR score of 70.5. Aitken College is non-selective and all students have an opportunity to pursue either a VCE or VCAL pathway as well as an opportunity to complete VET subjects in a number of certificate areas.

The average study score was 30 and there were 33 study scores of 40 or greater in the following subject areas: Accounting, Biology, Business Management, Chemistry, English, Environmental Science, Health and Human Development, History Revolutions, IT Applications, Legal Studies, Maths Methods, Media, Product Design and Technology, Physical Education, Sociology, Studio Arts, Visual Communication and Design and VET Sport and Recreation.

We look forward to student offers early in the new year with their ATARs seeing them enrol into courses of study of their choice. Students at Aitken College have the opportunity to engage in a broad range of extra curricular activities including leadership, sport, performing arts and service, all of which enrich their learning.

Success for students is finding a suitable pathway for their next part of their life journey. Many will continue onto tertiary studies, others will move into apprenticeships, traineeships, work or even take a gap year and travel overseas. We wish them well and hope that they take with them those things that are important: self-belief, care and service for others, a moral compass and becoming great community and global citizens.

The support of parents and teachers, who work in partnership with students, is vital and we acknowledge their important role in helping our students to achieve their personal best.
