Exam results break School’s record

The long wait for the SQA exam results is finally over and it has been another exceptional year for our pupils.

Their commitment to their studies and the support from parents and teachers has achieved a record set of results for the School and almost all of them secured the results necessary for their first choice university.

An impressive 18 pupils got six A grades at Higher while 57 achieved five or more As. More than half the pupils – 81 in all – were awarded four As or more.

Senior Depute Rector Mr Martin said: “I am delighted that our senior pupils have, once again, excelled in the SQA Examinations. The individual and collective results are superb and are just reward for the effort and commitment shown by the pupils this year.


“Congratulations and thanks must also go to their teachers for their dedication, attention and care. Well done, too, to the parents whose support is invaluable. Working together has been key to securing the success the pupils now enjoy. 

“Advanced Higher results are very pleasing with a jump in A grade passes which will see virtually all pupils accepted to their first choice course and university. For their first experience of external examinations, at National 5, the S4 pupils shone. Over three quarters of all examinations sat were awarded grade A.  Well done.

“In the all-important Higher examinations, for S5, the 151 pupils achieved an impressive 521 ‘A’ grades among them. In fact, 68% of all the Higher examinations sat by S5 were awarded grade A – one better than last year’s record. The pass rate of 96.5% is also a recent record.

“These are outstanding achievements by any measure and I am very proud of all the pupils and Team Hutchie. The future is bright."
