All our results this year should be considered through the context of what has preceded them – a global pandemic which has taken pupils, parents, and teachers far outside their comfort zones. I am, therefore, delighted to report that our pupils have again secured some of the very best SQA results in the country. For example:
- A remarkable 70.8% of our FVI Advanced Higher presentations resulted in A grades – the highest figure on record at Dollar Academy.
- The Form V pass rate at Higher, which is widely viewed as the national benchmark of academic success, stands at an impressive 96.3%.
- Form IV achieve a terrific 97.5% pass rate in their National 5 qualifications.
At Dollar we expect all our pupils to work hard, and I am delighted that their energy and commitment has brought such great reward. I should also like to thank my colleagues, for always covering that extra mile to support the best possible outcomes for our youngsters. This perhaps rings particularly true this year when considering the volume of work our teachers undertook throughout the session to help facilitate the awarding of SQA grades.
