Sheena Devlin, Executive Director of Perth & Kinross Council's Education and Children's Services, said: "It is always great to see the successes of our children and young people rewarded on results day. These results are down to their hard work.
"We would also like to thank all our teachers, school staff, parents and carers for their hard work and support.
"For those who perhaps didn't get the results they wanted, advice and support is available both from their own school and a range of other sources."
Learning and Families Convener Councillor John Rebbeck added: "These results are a reflection of the effort put in by everyone in our school communities.
"It's worth remembering that everyone who sat exams this year had to endure the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and for them to do so well is testament to their hard work and dedication."
