CONGRATULATIONS to Tameside A level students who have achieved fantastic exam results.

The borough’s three A Level providers - Ashton Sixth Form College, Audenshaw School and Clarendon Sixth Form – are all celebrating excellent results despite national reforms reportedly making the exams tougher.

Ashton Sixth Form College boasts its best ever A Level results, with a 100% overall pass rate.

Clarendon Sixth Form College, part of Tameside College, once again achieved a 100% pass rate  - including its best ever rate of high level grades A* to B.

Audenshaw School celebrated 100% pass rates in popular subjects including History, Geography and English Literature and was pleased that 59% of entries achieved high pass grades A*-to C.

Nationally the overall pass rate is 97.6%.

Tameside Council Executive Member Cllr Leanne Feeley said: “Well done to Tameside students who have really shone in this year’s A level exams. These results reflect a lot of hard work and dedication from students, teachers, governors and parents and I would like to thank everyone who has supported these young people over the years to achieve their best. These results will support this generation of residents to access good quality jobs and help grow the local economy both now and in the future. ”
