Close up of a school tie

Our pupils' performance in national examinations are consistently amongst the very best in Scotland.

Pupils are usually presented for exams in eight subjects at National 5 and five subjects at Higher level. However, a number of our pupils choose to sit more than this in one sitting.

We are incredibly proud of the highly impressive results achieved by our pupils in national examinations and are wholly committed to not only maintaining these excellent standards, but, where possible, improving on them.
