Exam Results

We are once again thrilled to announce an outstanding set of SQA Examination Results for 2018.  Our pupils have continued to perform superbly and have achieved some impressive results.  

  • 100% pass rate in 15 Higher subjects
  • 100% pass rate in 10 of our 12 Advanced Higher subjects
  • 97% A-C pass rate at Higher 
  • 95% A-C pass rate at Advanced Higher 
  • 95% A-C pass rate at National 5 
  • 59% of National 5 results were As
  • 50% of Higher results were As

Our 2018 results demonstrate a continued improvement in results from National 5 to Higher and along with our Advanced Higher results, position the quality of our pupils’ results incredibly well when compared with not only national averages but other schools in both independent and state sectors. 

Prinicpal Mr McPhail said “I congratulate all our young people on what are, once again, an excellent set of examination results and highlight the continued progress that the school is making. We are proud of all our young people and their endeavours and thank them for their hard work. This year’s results will see pupils leaving Hamilton College to progress to top Universities throughout Scotland and the UK to read for a wide variety of degrees across various disciplines. I wish continued success to all those leaving us this year.

I would also like to pay tribute to the staff within the School who teach, enthuse, motivate and nurture our young people, from an early age, to ensure that they maximise their potentials. I would also thank our parents and families who have been extremely supportive and continually encourage their children in a positive manner throughout the year.”
