In the summer of 2014, the Scottish government introduced a new bench marking tool for Scottish schools. Insight is now used to track performance from year to year. Data is only finalised in the March of the following year. Depending upon the time of your visit to this page, the data shown may be one or two calendar years behind the current session. As and when the government release new data we will update our website and handbook. The information shown is available from Education Scotland’s Parentzone website (www.educationscotland.gov.uk/parentzone).
Attainment for all learners
The data for school leavers is split into three categories; the lowest twenty per cent in terms of the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation, the middle sixty percent and the highest twenty per cent. The graph is not an indication of how many pupils we presented in each category but instead shows the average tariff score attained by pupils within each group.

Congratulations to our young people receiving their examination results this week. Once again, our S4 results are the highest ever achieved at Notre Dame which places young people in an excellent position as they embark on their fifth year studies. Well done to Pati Alonso of S4 who achieved nine passes at National 5. Pupils in S5 and S6 also achieved some outstanding results with a number of girls achieving 5 Higher passes at “A” grade. In addition, Leah McCabe and Joanne Tahaney of S5 enhanced their academic profile by achieving success in four Highers and Advanced Higher Music. Good luck to our outgoing sixth year pupils as they begin the next stage of their life journey. Remember girls, you are always welcome at Notre Dame High should you need help or advice with decisions around your next steps.
It has been great to see so many of you collecting your new uniforms this week. We are looking forward to hearing your views on the new blazer option and the service provided by our new uniform supplier, Logoxpres.
We hope that our pupils and their families have enjoyed a relaxing summer holiday. Remember that school will resume for all pupils at 8.50 a.m. on Tuesday 15 August and we look forward to welcoming our new first year pupils.
