Exam celebrations for students and staff took place across Bedford Borough today with provisional figures showing that over 98% of our pupils achieved at least 1 A* to E grade and 82% of our students achieved 3 or more A* to E grades at A-level; an increase of around 4% on last year.
Councillor Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education, said “Huge congratulations to all young people receiving their results across Bedford Borough today and the very best of luck as you look ahead towards the next steps into work or onto more study in further and higher education. Thanks, as well, to the parents, carers and teachers who supported our students and helped them to achieve their potential.”
