Response

Attached is a copy of all of the information requested in the format asked for.

We have included a number of notes along with the data you requested in order to aid interpretation. In particular please note that we do not hold information on which pupils could have taken Highers and so this has been interpreted as being the S5 or S6 school roll as recorded in the previous September's pupil census (e.g. the September 2019 pupil census has been used for 2020 results).
