Camden council leader Sarah Hayward was full of praise for A-level students across the borough following the publication of their results last week.

Cllr Hayward, who had been visiting La Sainte Union school to see students from the LaSWAP sixth form consortium collect their results, said:

“Very well done to all Camden students. Schools across the borough are offering their students both skills and experience that position them well for whatever it is that they choose to do next. In addition to the students themselves, a huge deal of credit should also go to our teachers and the support of parents.”

Results from the borough showed an impressive 93% of students achieving at least two passing grades at A-level, a 2% improvement on the 2015 results.

And Cllr Hayward was quick to praise the schools that made these results a possibility.

“Our secondary schools help young people to succeed, whatever their potential, talent or background, and that is exactly the platform that Camden Council wants our schools to provide,” she said

“We have seen achievements from inspirational young people, who are going on to great things.”
