Cheshire East A-level students’ success!
A-Level students’ in Cheshire East have once again chalked up impressive results that are above the national average.
The Borough’s 1,526 students received their results this morning and they have again achieved a provisional pass rate of 99 per cent, which is above the national average of 98 per cent.
The further breakdown of grades shows that the proportion of students achieving grades A* to A was 26.4 per cent, which is higher than the proportion nationally and well over half (54 per cent) achieved an A* to B grade.
Councillor Liz Durham, Cabinet member in charge of children and families, said: “This year’s exam results, once again, are extremely impressive and I congratulate all the sixth-formers on their achievements.
“I’m sure it has been an anxious time for students and their families as they await the result of years of hard work. May I offer my thanks to the parents, teachers, school staff and governors for all their support and encouragement over the past few years.
“I am particularly pleased to celebrate the continuing high number of top grades for all learners, which reflect the drive to achieve the highest grades possible and maximise potential.
“I wish our young people all the very best for the future, whether they are continuing their studies into further or higher education, apprenticeships or putting their first foot on the ladder in the work place.
“The Council is working with its arm’s length Skills and Growth Company to help ensure young people consider an apprenticeship as a clear route to a rewarding career once they receive their results.”
