SQA Results Day Information

We are however aware that some of you will have worked just as hard as others yet be disappointed with the results you have received. This may mean that you need to make changes to the courses you were planning to take in session 2019-2020. If this is the case then further information is available on the school website here:

Post Results Course Changes

If things have not gone as well as you had hoped  and you think that there has been some kind of significant mistake in the marking process, for instance if a result is considerably lower than that expected or estimated then further information is available at the link below. If a University or College offer is dependant on a result then you should carefully consider the information on this page before completing the form.

Senior Awards Ceremony

Last night saw the Senior Awards Ceremony marked the end of the school year and our celebration of achievements for our senior pupils.  It is always inspiring to share some of the incredible things that our young people manage to do during the session.

Thank you to The Polar Academy’s, Luke Robertson for being Guest of Honour on the night.

The “unseasonably” bright night meant that our photograph didn’t quite turn out how we planned!

We would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of everyone, to wish you all a fantastic summer!

Junior Awards Ceremony

Congratulations to all of the pupils in S1 – S3 who were awarded prizes at last night’s Junior Awards Ceremony.  It was terrific to see the achievements of all our young people, and the hard work of our staff, being celebrated at this prestigious event.

We would like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ Hazel Robertson, Explorer-in-Residence for the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and member of The Polar Academy, for agreeing to be our guest of honour.  Hazel talked to our pupils about her experiences and how these translate into other areas of her life – very inspirational!

Well done!
