From Mrs Sinclair
Congratulations to all pupils who performed exceptionally well in the National Qualifications from National 4 to Advanced Higher.
This year pupils studied seven subjects in fourth year for the first time. Eleven of our students achieved straight As in all subjects undertaken at National 5 Level. Rhodri Bevan, Damian Bonnar, Molly Cuthbert, Emma Dolan, Hannah Duddy, Piroska Horvath, Kelsey Kearney, Dearbhla McCabe, Rebecca McQuaid, Marta Pradzynska and Patrick Quinn. Quite an achievement and perhaps even more so for Marta and Piroska when English is their second language.
Three of our students achieved straight As in their 5 Highers: Liam McCafferty, Michael McKenna and Philip Quither. Congratulations too must go to Beth Cunningham who has left the school achieving Eight As at National 5, Five As at Higher and Three A Band Advanced Highers. Beth is going on to study Dentistry.
This is just a small sample of the excellent attainment this year:
- 49% of our Fourth Year achieved at least five National 5 Awards
- 44% (based on S4 roll) achieved at least three Highers in Fifth Year
- 72% (based on S4 roll) achieved at least one Higher
- 18.4% achieved five Highers in Fifth Year.
These are our best Fifth Year results ever and we are very proud of our students.
