Strathallan School is on the charge

Hot on the heels of the best A Level results in a generation, Strathallan School can today announce that the Year 11 GCSE cohort have delivered an outstanding set of results.

The percentage of 9’s (equivalent to the top A* grade) awarded in the reformed subjects was the best in the school’s history. One third of grades were 7-9 or A* to A with 26 pupils gaining 10 or more subjects at grades 9-7 (grade A). This is a significant achievement and is further evidence of the renewed focus on academic achievement at Strathallan. The new style examinations are very different to what has gone before. The new GCSE specifications are undoubtedly more rigorous and content heavy; both staff and pupils have had to work incredibly hard to adapt to the new schemes of work and develop and embed the skills required.

Headmaster, Mark Lauder congratulated the pupils on their hard work and well-deserved success. He said,

“I am absolutely delighted by these outstanding results, which represent a tremendous achievement for both pupils and staff. Pupils at Strathallan work hard and play hard, being involved in a wide range of extra-curricular activities including sport, drama and music. Having an outlet from academic studies encourages a healthy work/life balance which, in my opinion, spurs the pupils on to even greater academic success. I should also pay tribute to our team of dedicated and dynamic staff who are always willing to go the extra mile in their support for each individual pupil. This is a terrific day for Strathallan and I am very proud of them all!”
