Exam Results


We are thrilled to announce another outstanding set of SQA Examination Results for 2017.

Our pupils have continued to perform superbly and have achieved some impressive results.   

  • 100% A-C pass rate at Advanced Higher
  • 92.6% A-C pass rate at Higher
  • 93% A-C pass rate at National 5
  • 51% of Advance Higher results were As
  • 45% of Higher results were As
  • 60% of National 5 results were As
  • Advanced Higher A-C pass rate of 100% compared with the national average of 80%
  • Higher A-C pass rate of 92.6% compared with the national average of 77%

The 2017 results highlight a continued positive trend in the number of As achieved over previous years and also compare exceptionally well with other schools in both the independent and state sectors.   These results will see pupils leaving us to progress to top Universities throughout Scotland and the UK to read for a wide variety of degrees across various disciplines.

Prinicpal Mr McPhail said “The results this year are a tremendous achievement and are a testament to the hard work of both our young people and their dedicated teachers.  My sincere congratulations to our pupils on what are excellent examination results. When coupled with the wide range of other endeavours our young people take part in, the results continue to highlight the positive progress being made. As a school we are proud of you all and would wish all pupils who are moving on the very best for their futures.

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