Published: Friday, 16th August 2019
This means that nearly 1,400 students achieved A level success in Hounslow, compared to just over 1,200 last year.
Over 70% of A levels were awarded grades between A* and C.
Cllr Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services at Hounslow Council said: “Firstly, I would like to congratulate all those students who have achieved what they set out to do. It should also be noted that 2019 has seen the vast majority of tougher A level exams come into place, providing a further challenge for students.
“We often forget that a huge amount of hard work goes into achieving these results, not only from the students but also from their teachers, parents and carers who have been on hand for many years supporting them throughout their studies.
“Here in the London Borough of Hounslow, we are fully committed to offering the best opportunities for all our young people whether they choose to continue into further or higher education, move into an apprenticeship, or enter the workplace."
