Head teacher Re­becca Machin said: ‘I am so proud of all the Kin­lochleven High School pupils who have taken Na­tional, Higher and Ad- vanced Higher ex­am­i­na­tions this year. I know how hard they have worked and how am­bi­tious they are to do their best.’

Lochaber High School head teacher Jim Suther­land said: ‘Many of our pupils will be de­lighted with their re­sults, as I am, although, as al­ways, there are a few dis­ap­point­ments.

‘The most no­table suc­cesses this year come at Higher where eight of our S5 pupils have achieved five A passes, with one of those achiev­ing six A passes hav­ing stud­ied an ad­di­tional sub­ject in her spare time. I con­grat­u­late our pupils who have done so well.’
