Junior Mathematical Olympiad

Congratulations to James Painter (S2) on his recent success in Junior Mathematical Olympiad. This is the highest UK wide competition for pupils of his age. The top 210 received a medal. James received a bronze medal and most likely places him within the very top group of pupils in Scotland. Well done James!

Congratulations to Hamish (S4) and Ruadhan (S6) Scrivener-Anderson who have been invited to play the bagpipes at the World War 1 memorial service at the Menin Gate in Ypres this November.

We wish both boys all the very best.

S.Q.A. Results 2016


Overall, we are very pleased with our exam results this year. Well done to our pupils, staff and parents.


The new exams were brought in over the last four years and we now have a 3 year senior phase with all pupils encouraged to accumulate qualifications over this period.


We now focus on the progress of pupils over this period to maximise their potential by the time they leave school. However, we are also pleased to see that the number of pupils gaining 5 or more National 5s by the end of S4 has improved significantly this year.


The data below sets out levels of attainment by the end of S6 over the last 3 years and shows a further improvement on levels that were already considered very good.


These levels of attainment coupled with our destinations data is a very positive picture.


3 or more at SCQF level 6 by S6




5 or more at SCQF level 6 by S6





1 or more at SCQF level 7 by S6
