STUDENTS across North Tyneside are celebrating this morning after achieveing a set of successful A-level results.

Results from high schools across the borough show that students have secured the greatest number of A and A* grades this year, compared to previous years.

The average point score per student is also the highest the borough has ever seen, with almost 10 percent of students achieving three or more A-levels at A or A* grades.

Cllr David Lilly, Cabinet member for Children, Young People and Learning, said: “Our students and staff have worked extremely hard to achieve this great set of results, which are an absolute credit to them.

“North Tyneside schools encourage high aspiration and set high standards, working closely in partnership with the local authority and each other, to support our young people and enable them to reach their full potential.

“It’s especially encouraging to hear that so many of our students have secured their first or second choice of university place, with many meeting rigorously high entry requirements to secure places at some of the country’s top universities. This really is a set of results to be proud of.”
