The HSC School Rankings list for 2020 has been revealed with the top 200 schools across NSW earning bragging rights on the list of distinguished achievers.

To say that 2020 was an unprecedented year would be an understatement. In a year that presented new challenges and expedited remote learning there has never been a better time to look at personal education.
