Sutton Council is congratulating pupils and staff in schools across the borough as they celebrate this year’s outstanding A-Level results.
Sutton schools have again maintained and improved their high performance in the examinations, with results consistently above the UK average.
The proportion of students across the borough achieving the highest A-Level A* and B grades is 65.1%.
The percentage of students achieving an A-Level pass grade (A* to E) has increased to 99.7% from the 98.5% level posted last year. This is above the UK average of 98.1%.
Cllr Wendy Mathys, Liberal Democrat Chair of Sutton Council’s Children, Family and Education Committee, said she was delighted that once again the results achieved by young people in Sutton were among the best in the country.
“This is the result of the wonderful support they have had from their parents and carers and from our excellent Sutton schools. But most of all it is a tribute to the hard work and ability of the students themselves. I heartily congratulate them,” Wendy said.
