Today was results day and before we go any further, well done to every single pupil who sat an exam in this diet. Everyone worked hard and their commitment is reflected in this year’s excellent SQA examination results. At Higher, the pass rate was 95% and over half of the awards were at grade ’A’. Similar levels of success were achieved at National 5 (with 69% of awards at grade ‘A’) and Advanced Higher (with 52% of awards at grade ‘A’). Staff would like to convey that they are absolutely delighted with the academic attainment of all our pupils. Meanwhile, Mr Johnson said “Wellington pupils have once again achieved outstanding examination results, which reflect both their hard work and that of our teachers. Schools are often judged by league table statistics, but it is the results of each individual pupil that matter and I am delighted that so many can be proud of the grades that they have received today.”
You may remember that Wellington was recently honoured to receive an award bearing testament to our commitment to educational excellence – Education Advisers’ Scottish Independent School for Advanced Highers, 2017.
We are delighted that our pupils’ results are consistently high – and deservedly so. We hope every pupil will be able to reflect positively on this academic year and we look forward to welcoming everyone back on the 23rd of August.
