Exam Results 2014

Elgin Academy students have enjoyed a very successful set of SQA exam results overall, learning about their success on Tuesday 5 August. These results include record high levels of Higher passes in S5 and in  S6, and a successful introduction of the new National 4s and National 5s. There were some tremendous individual successes: eight students – Scott Adams, Callum Alexander, Hanoz Bhamgara, Grace Carter, Leonie Davidson, Rachel McFarlane, Iain Sword and Darren Wimble – gained five As at Higher in S5. In S6, Rebecca McHugh gained three As at  Advanced Higher, whilst Stuart Freschini and Lorna Taylor both gained 2 As at Advanced Higher and 2 As at Higher in S6. The new National 5 in S4 saw 15 pupils gain six As: Zmarak Ahmed Khan, Abbie Bell, Graeme Bethune, Anna Campbell, Holly Carmichael, Sian Copland, Matthew Coulson, Meg Daly, Oscar Heald, Elliot Lees, Kirsty McCulloch, Thomas Meikle, Alasdair Robinson, Rhiannon Smith and Alisha Stevenson. Rhiannon also gained an A at Higher. Alex Hawco achieved great success in S4, gaining three As at National 5 and three As at Higher.

In addition to these results, many students have gained very good sets of results. Our congratulations go to all who have achieved so much. Some students have not achieved what they hoped for. School staff have been on hand to deal with queries, and students will have the opportunity to change their course choices if necessary when they return on Tuesday 19 August 2014.

We look forward to more success in 2015!

Sponsored Walk

Our annual Sponsored Walk took place in glorious sunshine on Tuesday 24 June 2014. Pupils in S2-S5 walked the old railway line from Elgin to Lossiemouth and back, raising thousands of pounds in the process for the school fund. They were ably supported, supervised and encouraged by our S6 students. We thank all those who participated, supervised, sponsored us or helped us in any way. We look forward to hearing the final total raised. (Special thanks to Lossiemouth Football Club).

The panellists were Ms Mary Scanlon, Conservative MSP for Highlands and Islands and Spokesperson for Education; Mr Sean Morton, Labour Councillor for Fochabers and Lhanbryde; Mr Richard Lochhead, SNP MSP for Moray and Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affair and Environment; Mr John Finnie, Independent MSP for Highlands and Islands. Our thanks go to the Modern Studies department, and, in particular, Ms Emma Hendry, PT Modern Studies for organising the event.
