The Edinburgh Academy is delighted to announce another set of superb results for the recent SQA examinations. As Rector, Barry Welsh, writes: “Congratulations to all our students who have worked incredibly hard to achieve their goals – their determination and diligence have been rewarded in excellent grades. My sincere thanks has to also go to our academic staff, who guide and inspire our students to fulfil their ambitions.”
Our Advanced Highers (S6) students attained a remarkable pass rate of 94% with 65% of these at A grade, an 8% increase from 2017. At S5 (Higher) the A-C pass rate was 98%, with 66% of these at A grade. In the National 5 exams candidates performed very well indeed, with 95% gaining A-C and of these 66% were at A grade. Over a quarter of the year group gained all As in their exams.
In A Level, the Art Department gained 100% A/A*, a wonderful set of results. With GCSE results still to come, we wish the best of luck to those still awaiting their other results. We look forward to celebrating our students’ successes when they return for the new academic year.
