Senior pupils at Rothesay Academy said (almost) their final farewells to secondary education at the school’s annual ‘leavers’ ceilidh’ on Tuesday.

Held in the magnificent Marble Hall at Mount Stuart, the eagerly-awaited occasion witnessed a riot of glittering dresses, sharp suits and colourful kilts as pupils danced the night away to the sound of the Bute Ceilidh Band.

Tuesday’s event wasn’t quite the final act in the pupils’ school stories, though - the Academy’s first Achievement Awards ceremony takes place this Friday, June 28, while the school’s main academic awards will be presented at a separate ceremony on the evening of Thursday, August 29, once the pupils’ SQA results have been published.
