Borough hits new highs with A-Level results

16 August 2018

Councillor Kieran Heakin.

More students, taking more A-Levels, are getting top marks across the borough.

Across the borough 2127 A-Levels were taken - up from 1976 last year. More than 800 pupils took A-Levels, compared to 746 last year.

The number of students achieving 3 or more A-Levels (A*-E) increase by 10% on last year with 79.08% of students getting the grades.

The overall pass rate for those getting A* to E was 98.7%, which is up on last year by 0.5% and is 1.1% higher than national overall pass-rate (97.6%).

'It is great to see us, yet again, making year-on-year improvements. Pupils have worked so hard and they should all be proud of the dedication they have put in'

Councillor Kieran Heakin, Cabinet Member for Children's Services, said: "It is great to see us, yet again, making year-on-year improvements. Pupils have worked so hard and they should all be proud of the dedication they have put in. If you are in a position where you've not got the grades you were expecting then please don't panic. There are so many options out there for young people to succeed in their chosen career".

For those students where results weren't as expected there is help and options out there. Contact the University and College Admissions Service (UCAS), who are there to support all students and provide options to everyone.
