SQA exam results 2018

Hutchesons’ pupils are celebrating another successful academic year with a fantastic set of SQA results – 68% of all S5 Highers were awarded grade A.

An impressive 40% of S5 pupils received 5 A grades or more. 20% of the pupils gained 6 Highers at grade A.

Rector Colin Gambles said: “The consistent academic strength of the school continues to shine through.  The staff and pupils have worked hard together to sustain, for the third year running, a hugely impressive and record-equalling 68% of all S5 Highers awarded at grade A.”

The S4 Nat 5 results were equally impressive – 78% of all Nat 5 at grade A and 91% at grade A&B.

Five [and a sixth awaiting STEP paper] pupils have received their places at Oxford and Cambridge and 40% of pupils will enter other Russell Group Universities.

We would also celebrate the many personal triumphs that are not recognized in the following headlines: one pupil gained seven straight As at Higher, 20% of the Fifth Year gained 6 As at Higher and another 20% gained 5 grade As.  These results are again made possible by our unique curricular structure that routinely allows the study of six Highers.

The future is looking bright: the Fourth Year have performed really strongly with four-fifths grade A at National 5.
