South Tyneside Students Make the Grade
Students in South Tyneside are celebrating today after recording an impressive set of A Level results.
A staggering 83.7 per cent of exam entries from young people in the borough were awarded A level grades A* - C, compared to 82.1 per cent nationally.
And 30.3% of A Levels in South Tyneside schools and colleges achieved the top grades of A*-A.
Councillor Adam Ellison, Lead Member for Children, Young People and Families, said: "These are an excellent set of results which shows we are continuing to deliver on our priority of supporting our young people.
"While the expertise of our dedicated teaching staff and the unwavering support of parents and carers cannot be overstated, today is all about our young people.
"Their hard work and commitment have really paid off and they should be really proud of themselves.
"Congratulations to them all."
