Council praise fantastic A-level results
3:33pm Thursday 16th August 2012 in News
CHESHIRE West and Chester Council have congratulated students after they maintained the borough’s high standards of A-level results.
Provisional figures show that a total of 1,282 students from 14 schools - including the Academies - have equalled last year’s outstanding achievement by scoring an average pass rate of 98 per cent.
This performance is in line with the national average of 98 percent.
And almost six percent of students in the borough achieved higher grade A* passes, representing a small increase on last year.
Gerald Meehan, Strategic Director for Children and Young People’s Services at CWAC, said: “This is a wonderful performance and I am delighted that our students and schools continue to achieve such high standards – a clear testimony to their hard work and dedication.
“We send our congratulations to all students and our sincere thanks to teachers, support staff, governors, parents and carers who do so much to enable them to achieve.
“We are very proud of our young people and we wish them every success for the future. We will, of course, continue to give support to schools and students wherever needed."
