KHS SQA Results

Message from Sarah Brown KHS Headteacher

After months of hard work, supported by their teachers, parents and carers, our senior pupils have received their exam results.  Our pupils should be extremely proud of their efforts as they have achieved an outstanding set of results across the board. 

Our S4 pupils have recorded an increased number of awards, between them achieving 1085 National Qualifications, 79% of these awards are at National 5 or above.  The pass rate for pupils at Kinross High School was 89% (national average 79%).  There were 29 pupils in this year group who achieved all qualifications at grade A and 7 pupils who achieved a grade A in Higher Music.  In addition to their National Qualifications, 19 of our pupils also received a National Progression award in Practical Science.  This is a new qualification which was introduced to develop knowledge of scientific techniques that are important in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) sector.

In S5 our pupils achieved 551 Higher awards and the pass rate (A-C) increased to 90% approximately 13% above the national average.  Twelve of our pupils gained all of their awards at grade A.  While many of our subjects demonstrate a strong performance, it is worth highlighting the achievement of pupils in Higher English.  There were 109 passes in Higher English and 39% of these pupils were awarded their pass at grade A (this is a threefold increase in the number of As achieved).

In S6, there was also a strong performance by our pupils at Advanced Higher with an significant increase in the pass rate which rose from 74% to 83%. 

Over the coming months, we will be analysing the results in more depth and comparing the performance of our pupils to national benchmarking measures so that we can identify how to further improve.  However, this is a moment for celebration, and I would like to congratulate all of our pupils on their excellent examination results.
