Students across Hounslow are celebrating their achievements with the publication of this year’s A-Level results.
2018 has seen more of the new tougher exams rolled out, designed to stretch and challenge the most able.
The provisional results show an overall Hounslow pass rate at 97.2 per cent, with 21.2 per cent of grades being at grades A*-A, giving students the passport to take up their chosen university courses, apprenticeships or career openings.
Councillor Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services, Hounslow Council, said:
“I would like to congratulate each and every one of Hounslow’s young people for their achievements against the rigours of the new A levels.
“A lot of hard work goes into achieving these results, not only from the students themselves, but from the teachers, governors, parents and families, who offer that vital support throughout the course.
“As a council, we are committed to providing the best opportunities for our young people in our borough, which includes ensuring high quality education in Hounslow schools.”
For students who have got their results, but are unsure about what to do next, the Hounslow 14-19 Connexions Team are available to provide free impartial advice and guidance on the range of options available.
