14 subjects achieved 100% pass rate and another four achieved above 95% pass rate. 12 subjects achieved more than 80% grade and Drama and Latin 100% grade A.

The Rector, Peter Brodie, said: "I would like to congratulate all of our S4 to S6 pupils on an excellent set of examination results. I am particularly encouraged by this year's pass rates, which are all the more impressive given that we have an open entry policy and present pupils for a significantly greater number of Highers (averaging around five per pupil) than many schools. 

"These results reflect the commitment, hard work and talent of our young people and I would like to thank our staff for their outstanding support and encouragement.  Well done to all!"
