Sutton students celebrate A-Level achievements

Sutton schools continue to perform to a very high standard and above national average in a year when the way A levels are administered and graded changed significantly.

The proportion of students across the borough achieving the highest A-level A* and B grades is 61 per cent. The proportion of local students achieving A* to E is 98.5 per cent and above the UK average of 97.9 per cent.

Cllr Wendy Mathys, Chair of the Children, Family and Education Committee at Sutton Council, said:

“Sutton has always had reason to be rightly proud of the success of our hard-working students and high-achieving schools. I want to put on record Sutton Council’s thanks to the committed teachers, governors and support staff in all our local schools. Students today have a wide range of options available to them, whether it be further studies, apprenticeships or entering the world of work. I hope the results collected yesterday give all our young adults what they need to progress to their next stage in life.”
