Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­mealy

Fern­hill School pupils were gen­er­ally de­lighted when they re­ceived their exam re­sults.

In the bench­mark Higher ex­ams S5 pupils achieved ex­cel­lent re­sults with an over­all pass rate of 94.1 per cent; 82.4 per cent of passes were with A/B grades and 65 per cent of Higher passes at A grade.

S4 pupils also achieved ex­cel­lent re­sults at Na­tional 5 with a 100 per cent at­tain­ment rate for the sec­ond year run­ning.

S6 pupils ex­celled equally, with a 100 per cent pass rate at Ad­vanced Higher, with 78 per cent of these re­sults at A grade.

Dr Laura Mur­phy, head teacher at Fern­hill School, said: “It is tes­ta­ment to our suc­cess­ful S6 pro­gramme that the vast ma­jor­ity of our pupils have se­cured places in their first choice Uni­ver­sity cour­ses.

“We wish our S6 leavers ev­ery suc­cess for their fu­ture stud­ies.

“All of this suc­cess is a re­flec­tion of the tremen­dous hard work done over the last year. The com­mit­ment shown by our won­der­ful pupils has been matched by the un­stint­ing ded­i­ca­tion of our staff, and the in­cred­i­ble on­go­ing sup­port of our par­ent body.
