Setting the right benchmark
"What is most relevant to me is how my school compares with those in similar circumstances, where the school is and where it needs to get to," Mr Malone said.
St Andrew's is increasingly seen as a benchmark. This year more than 20 per cent of Standard grade pupils gained five or more Credit awards against 13 per cent last year. Ninety per cent achieved five or more S grade passes overall against 72 per cent last year and a Glasgow average of 79 per cent.
