Exceptional and well-deserved success

Dear students & parents/carers

I could not be prouder of the achievements of our students from S4-S6 and who have work so hard for their success. . They should all feel immensely proud of what they have achieved.  Well done to all.

A special word of thanks and best wishes for the future to the departing S6 students. This hugely talented group have been through so much over the past 18 months, but they have shown remarkable levels of resolve, resilience and endeavour, dealing with all the challenges which came their way with great calm and clarity of thought. They have also been the most delightful group of students and can be rightly proud of their stunning results.

I would also like to congratulate the students from S3-S6 who participated in the vocational qualifications programme ranging from SCQF Level 3 to Level 8. Their success has been of the highest standard.  The range of qualifications achieved from Foundation Apprenticeships to Beekeeping is a tremendous tribute to the desire of our students to develop their knowledge and skills beyond the traditional profile of SQA Qualifications.

One example of that success was the Human Body Structure & Function. The course is a SCQF Level 8 taught through West College Scotland. It forms part of the ERC/School vocational programme and has been run very successfully for a number of years. The students receive a pass or a fail only. No percentage grades are awarded. Despite the challenges of online learning, they remained focused and engaged at all times. All 16 students achieved the award with an average coursework score of 80%. with Zainab Alani achieving 100%. Another was all S6 students  achieved their Psychology – Personal Development Award (PDA) at  SCQF Level 7.

A full summary of our course successes will be made available when we receive all student results from the Colleges.

Ad Astra!

John Docherty
