Herefordshire’s young people have plenty to celebrate today as A-level results are released.
The results from school sixth forms across the county, which are provisional at this stage, indicate that the number of A-level and equivalent passes have increased in Herefordshire this year to over 99%, which outperforms the national picture.
The number of top grades has also increased, exceeding 11%. Over 95% of students achieved two or more A-level and equivalent passes, whilst the number achieving three or more qualifications has also risen.
Councillor Jeremy Millar, Cabinet member for young people and children’s wellbeing, said: “This is a very positive picture for Herefordshire. My congratulations go to all of our young people who have worked so hard to achieve such outstanding success and to the quality of teaching which has contributed to their achievements. We are very proud of the county’s results.”
