After another unprecedented year, Morrison’s Academy pupils and staff have responded with resilience and determination to achieve exceptional grades in their SQA qualifications. 

During a year like no other, final results were based upon a robust and thorough process of assessment and Morrison’s Academy’s reputation for high academic performance and excellent grades has been proven once again.  These outstanding grades are testament to the hard work of the pupils, the support of their families and the high quality teaching and learning environment of Morrison’s Academy.

Morrison’s Academy’s sector leading Art and Design department once more congratulates their pupils who gained a full set of As at all three examination levels, for the seventh year in a row, a remarkable achievement. The Music department is also celebrating the success of its pupils who also achieved straight A's across all exam levels. 

Mr Andrew J McGarva, Morrison’s Academy’s new Rector and Principal, said, “These results are a testament to the high quality teaching and learning that takes place at Morrison's Academy. The strength of our school community has enabled our pupils to succeed and I am indebted to the families of our pupils and the staff who have supported them through the most challenging of school years.”
