The only way is up for Arran High School pupils

The school saw its overall attainment improve for the third successive year

More pupils than ever before passed higher and advance higher exams at Arran High School this year as the school saw its overall attainment improve for the third successive year.

That was the positive message head teacher Barry Smith gave at the school’s annual award ceremony held on Wednesday Setpember 6. As reported in last week’s Banner the school this year has a joint dux in Alison Provan and Rachel Janse Van Rensburg.

Giving his address to parents at the awards night Mr Smith said: ‘Arran High School’s attainment has continued on an improving trend for the third straight year and this year we can celebrate not only a further increase in the average number of National 5 qualifications achieved by our S4 students, but also the best attainment at higher and advanced higher level across S5 and S6, that the school has seen.

‘This year more than 60 per cent of our students left to go to university or college, with an even split between employment and apprenticeships for the remainder.

These successful school leaver destinations rely on partnerships and I continue to be very grateful for the degree of engagement from the business community on Arran, in particular through our school-employer forum and VisitArran which work to develop the pathways that provide greater and more varied opportunities for our young people to develop skills for life and work.
