Stromness Academy

SQA results will be sent direct to learners on Tuesday 9th August. If you have questions about your results, or need help with course choices for next year or next steps after school, staff are available in school from 9am to 3pm on Tuesday -pupils and parents are welcome to drop by, phone in or email. Note that as part of covid recovery, any SQA grade which is lower than your teacher estimate can be appealed if the school has evidence you can perform at the estimated level. If you think you are eligible to appeal, talk to staff on Tuesday or when school starts for advice.It’s almost Results Day – on Tuesday, thousands of learners will receive their certificates.On the day, if you have any questions about your certificate, our Candidate Advice Line will be on hand to help.Contact them from 8am on Tuesday 9 August or visit our Results Day page for more useful info: bit.ly/SQA-results
