On Monday 19th September our pupils took part in the Caritas Commissioning Service in Motherwell Cathedral.
The service was celebrated by his Lordship Bishop Toal and our pupils were a credit to themselves, their families and to our school.
Fernhill School pupils can be justly proud of a highly successful year in public examinations.
In the benchmark Higher examinations our S5 pupils achieved excellent results with an overall pass rate of 94.1%; 82.4% of passes being A/B Grades and 65 % of Higher passes at A Grade.
Our S4 pupils achieved excellent results at National 5 with a 100% attainment rate for the second year running.
S6 pupils have also excelled with a 100% pass rate at Advanced Higher; 78% of these results at A Grade. It is testament to our successful S6 programme that the vast majority of our pupils have secured places in their first choice University courses. We wish our S6 leavers every success for their future studies.
All of this success is a reflection of the tremendous hard work done over the last year. The commitment shown by our wonderful pupils has been matched by the unstinting dedication of our staff, and the incredible ongoing support of our parent body.

Thanks to our exciting partnership with the Italian Consulate, our Primary pupils are now enjoying Italian lessons each week in addition to their French lessons.
