Students across Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon and Wetherby have received their A level results.
A level students across North Yorkshire have achieved high levels of success in their results this year, with the majority of the county’s schools showing improvements once again in student point scores.
Early figures show the majority of North Yorkshire schools recording outstanding A-level scores, maintaining the very high standards of previous years.
A North Yorkshire County Council statement read: “North Yorkshire has consistently been in the top ten per cent of authorities nationally for A-level success in past years and these early indications suggest the county is likely to have maintained that performance. Results in so far reveal an improvement in the average point score per entry for the fourth successive year.
“While the full county-wide picture will not be known immediately, it is clear already that the county has a good deal to celebrate as these top-level results mean its students are well-placed to go on to the higher education course, training or employment position of their choice.”
North Yorkshire sends a higher proportion of students to Oxbridge, the top Russell Group universities and the top third of high performing higher eduction institutions than most other local authorities.
County Councillor Arthur Barker, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Schools said: “I would like to congratulate all the young people of North Yorkshire on their results this morning.
“These outstanding results mean that that they are in a very good position to to take up the higher education and training places of their choice; that they can step out into the world with high aspirations and with confidence.
“There is a great deal in these achievements to be proud of and they are a tribute to the application and hard work of students, the support of families and to the dedication of school staff and the quality of teaching in North Yorkshire.
“These very high standards mean that the nation’s most prestigious universities are open to the county’s students across a wide range of subjects as well as the widest range of vocational courses, training and employment.
“We congratulate our students and wish them all well in their future lives and on which ever pathway they choose to take.”
