Camden’s teenagers have been lauded for this year’s set of A-level results, with grades in line with national standards.

Schools across the borough celebrated exam success yesterday on A-level results day, with 77.5 per cent of students achieving A* to C grades – compared with 77.2 per cent nationally.

It is a slight dip since last year, when 79 per cent of students achieved A* to C grades.

But there was a small increase in the borough’s A-level pass rate, up from 98.3 per cent to 98.6 per cent.

The national picture was one of stability, with pass rates in line with last year’s set of results.

Cllr Angela Mason, cabinet member for children, celebrated pupils’ exam triumphs yesterday in a visit to La Swap sixth-form consortium at Parliament Hill School.

She said: “Congratulations to A-level students across Camden schools and the dedicated staff who teach them. These results are testimony to the quality and hard work of our teachers and the support of parents.

“Camden schools offer students an amazing breadth of skills, subjects and experiences, with links to world-class cultural institutions, universities and businesses. The quality of education on offer is reflected in this year’s results, which show our A-level students performing well.”
