Selkirk High School head teacher Wilma Burgon has praised her pupils and staff following the publication of exam results this week.
She told the Wee Paper: “I’d like to say congratulations and well done to all students on their achievements.
“I am pleased with the results, particularly at National level and the improvements at Higher.
“These awards are a reflection of the hard work, commitment and dedication shown by staff and students.”
At National 4 level, 84 per cent of Selkirk High’s pupils passed. Ninety per cent of National 5 exams were passed, 40 per cent with an A.
The overall figure put the school nine per cent up on the Scottish pass rate.
Eighty per cent of Higher subjects were passed by pupils, with almost a quarter at A-grade.
Almost three quarters of Advanced Highers courses were passed, 17 per cent at the highest level.
Mrs Burgon added: “When the school returns after the holidays we will carry out a more detailed analysis, identifying what has gone well and what we will do to ensure further improvement.
“At the beginning of the new term 5th and 6th year students will also meet with their pastoral teacher so that results and courses can be discussed in preparation for what I am sure will be another successful session.”
