Academic Colours 2018

Lomond School maintained its exceptionally high number of awards for Academic Colours this year, with over half of S4 pupils achieving Silver Colours for 6 or more A grades at National 5, and a third of the S5 cohort receiving Gold Colours for 4 or more A grades at Higher.

Principal, Mrs Urquhart, expressed her delight at the continued academic success of the school:

“This reflects the hard work, by both pupils and staff, to ensure the very best quality passes possible and not just to settle for a pass. Across S4-6, 75% of all pupils achieved A or B grades in every single one of their SQA examinations. Even in a non-selective school, with a policy of open presentation, pass rates were 90% which is well above the local and national average. To me, this shows the added value of Lomond School. In an increasingly competitive post-school world, it is the high quality of passes which give our pupils the cutting edge, and ensures they receive the very best offers from the very best institutions -with 96% of last year’s sixth form moving on to their choice of destination.

Yet although we are justifiably proud of our pupils’ academic attainment, this is only part of the story at Lomond School. Thanks to our new sixth form programme, our young people leave Lomond with more than just outstanding grades. They have practical skills, confidence, links to business, research skills and the determination to succeed whatever the odds. Our young people have a love of learning, a spirit of adventure, and are able to take risks and show resilience. The many leadership opportunities on offer help them to be resourceful and mature. These qualities, to me, define success just as much as examination grades.”
