Best ever exam results

Congratulations to pupils and staff on achieving our best ever results at Higher Grade this year.

The SQA results for 2017 have been published today (Tuesday 8 August). Pupils across the year groups have performed extremely well

  • S4 90% passed 5 or more National 5 course
  • S5 85% passed 3 or more Highers
  • S5 64% passed 5 or more Highers
  • S6 61% passed 1 or more Advanced Highers


Prior to 2017 the highest percentage passing 5+ Highers has been 54%.

Performance in S4 is extremely strong which bodes well for the coming session.


While these headline figures are very encouraging, the performance of pupils who do not make the headlines is just as important. Yet again, the biggest learning gains are not for the most academic students, but for all others.
