Dumfries and Galloway Council have released a comment congratulating both pupils, and the staff who taught them, for their successes in today's exams results.
“Success within our schools is measured in many different ways to reflect our vision of raising levels of attainment, achievement and participation in all of our children and young people.
“Exam results are one of the key indicators we use to measure how our schools are performing and we are very pleased with the results overall. We will continue to support all of our schools to both highlight successes and identify any areas where there is room for improvement.
“I congratulate all our teaching staff on their commitment to delivering learning experiences of the highest standards. Our pupils should be very proud of themselves too and I wish them all success for the future.”
