Sixth formers in West Cheshire have once again maintained the borough’s high standards of A level success.

Provisional figures revealed today (Thursday) indicate that a total of 2,155 students from 15 schools, academies and colleges have scored an average pass rate of over 97% - in line with comparable national figures.

Almost 8% of students in the borough achieved higher grade A* passes - an increase of nearly two percentage points on provisional results released at this time last year. 

Similar increases have also been seen at A and B grade passes. This bucks the national trend where results at the highest grades have fallen slightly.

Cllr Mark Stocks, executive member for children and families, at Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “Once again the borough’s high standards have been maintained and I want to thank everyone involved particularly, of course, parents, teachers and the youngsters themselves.”

Added Gerald Meehan, strategic director for children and young people’s services: “Whilst overall results are very satisfying, I am particularly pleased that our sixth formers also have appeared to reverse the national fall in A and B grade passes."
