Cults Academy comes top of the class in Aberdeen city schools table
The figures show that 83% of the school's pupils achieved one or more Highers from A to C in 2012.
Cults Academy proved it was top of the class in Aberdeen City after the latest Scottish Schools league tables were published on Tuesday.
The annual league table breaks down how well pupils are doing based on the amount of Highers they have achieved during the year, also taking social issues into consideration by posting the percentage of pupils who receive free meals as part of a Scottish Government programme.
The study only looks at schools from local authorities, with private schools data published separately.
Cults Academy came top with an impressive 83% of pupils achieving at least one Higher at A to C grade, 67% achieving three or more and 42% achieving five or more Highers.
The school provides free school meals to just 2.3% of its pupils.
Aberdeen Grammar School, which has topped the list in previous years, came second in the city, with 70% of pupils achieving one or more Highers.
At the bottom of the Aberdeen city table was Northfield Academy, with 0% of pupils achieving five or more Highers. Eleven per cent of pupils achieved at least one Higher, while two per cent were awarded at least three.
The school, which is also situated in one of the most impoverished areas of the city, also provides school meals for nearly a third of pupils, with 29.7% receiving free school meals.
The average school from across the city was calculated to have 10% of pupils receiving school meals, 42% achieving one or more Highers, 24% achieving three or more, and 13% achieving five or more of the certificates at A to C grade.
