Glenalmond Pupils Reach High Note with A-Level Results

Two Glenalmond College pupils, who were in one of our school bands together, are celebrating reaching a high note in their academic careers today (August 15th, 2019) after being awarded excellent A-Level results. Alex Wallace, from Dunfermline, and Angus Grierson, from near Methven, were among the Glenalmond pupils who have contributed to the exceptional results which have seen Glenalmond recording its highest percentage of A* A-Level grades for five years. More than 12% of Glenalmond results were A* grade and a remarkable 30% of all the results were A* - A grades. These results are set against a backdrop of the national performance which has seen the proportion of students achieving top grades at A-level fall to its lowest level for more than a decade.
