St Kent's exam success

Early indications show that the results from S5 pupils across West Lothian's 11 secondary schools have improved across a number of key indicators at Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Level 6, which includes Highers.

This is the seventh consecutive year that exam performance has improved in West Lothian.

St Kent's pupils recorded a rise of 12 percentage points in those passing five or more Higher level courses to 33% and a nine percentage point rise in those passing three or more Higher level courses to 55%.

St Kent's Headteacher Andrew Sharkey said: "Congratulations to all the St Kent's students who helped ensure the school recorded a fantastic year of record exam results. 

"It's a tribute to all the hard work put in by our students, and the amazing support they received from our dedicated teaching staff, parents/carers and the whole school community.

"This year we had 31 students achieving five Highers, 27 S5 students who achieved seven Level 6 Awards and 22 S4 students who passed five or more National 5's at Band A.

"We're very proud of all our students, but special praise must go to some who achieved exceptional results such as our four S4 students who achieved A passes in Higher Grade Music and the 18 students who achieved A passes in N5 French.

"All four students studying for Baccalaureates passed, including S6 student Fiona Campbell who earned a Baccalaureate in Science at Distinction along with three A and one B pass for Advanced Highers in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology."
