The SQA Results were published today and I am delighted that so many of our young people have done very well with some outstanding results achieved.
The excellent results obtained by very many pupils at Charleston Academy is testament to the hard work of staff and pupils and the support of their parents who work with us in a very positive partnership.
- In S5, 55 pupils achieved three or more Highers (39.6% of the total) – the highest ever for the current Highers at Charleston Academy.
- 21 pupils achieved five Highers at Grades A to C.
- 6 pupils received outstanding results, achieving five Highers at Grade A : Catriona Forsyth, Rachel MacInnes, Robbie Maclennan, Arianne Ross, Louis Slorach, and Callum White.
We are also hugely impressed with the results in S4 during this first year of the new National 5 Qualifications.
- 64 pupils (45.1%) obtained five or more awards at National 5. This is significantly up on previous Credit Level Awards (40.3% in 2013 and 37.9% in 2012).
In what was a challenging and extremely demanding year for our staff, as well as pupils and their parents, everyone can be very proud of these excellent results.
There are some individual disappointments where pupils may not have obtained the grade they were expecting and senior staff will work closely with those affected, their parents and others to support them in whatever way we can and ensure no one is disadvantaged by the system in any way.
Staff and pupils at Charleston Academy can return for the start of the new term knowing that their tremendous effort over the past session was very much worth it. We will continue to ensure Charleston Academy delivers the best possible education and experience for all of our young people.
