We are delighted that our pupils have been successful in their quest for top examination grades after a very challenging year of Covid-related disruption to learning.
This year’s exam success is a result of pupil commitment to learning and support from teaching staff and parents.
At Hutchesons’ we always stress the importance of a strong partnership between school and home to ensure each pupil is supported to achieve to the best of their ability. This partnership has been even more important this year with pupils learning under changing covid restrictions.
We are incredibly proud of all our pupils who coped well with online learning and periods of self-isolation. Our effective live online classes ensured that pupils continued learning throughout lockdown, all courses were completed and could be assessed.
This is the sixth year running that over 67% of all Highers awarded to our Fifth Year are at grade A.
Rector Colin Gambles said: “I am delighted that our pupils have achieved excellent results this year.
“These results provide evidence of how hard the pupils have been studying throughout the year. Their efforts ensured our teachers had sufficient evidence to submit a large number of A grades to the SQA..
“Our pupils, parents and staff have been united in the quest for excellent results and I am very proud of what we have achieved together.”
The vast majority of our S6 leavers have once again secured their first choice university place. Individual pupil choices remain impressively varied with successful applications to courses in the Arts, Social Sciences and the Sciences.
We wish them every success for the future as they move on to universities across the UK including a number of Russell Group universities.
