The SQA examination results have now been released and there is plenty to celebrate at Wellington.
S5 pupils excelled at Higher and a very impressive 63% of awards were achieved at grade A, with a pass rate of 93%. In a year when S6 pupils sat more Advanced Higher examinations than in any year of the last decade, they also achieved the highest levels of success with a remarkable 66% of awards being at grade A. In S4, the pass rate at National 5 was 96% and 70% of awards were at grade A.
Mr Johnson, Headmaster, is delighted with these excellent results: “Schools are rightly proud to celebrate good overall exam statistics, but it is the achievements of individuals that really matter. Results of this quality are not obtained without a great deal of hard work and I congratulate the pupils on what they have achieved this year.”
