SCHOOLS across Bucks cel­e­brated their best set of A-level re­sults yet on Thurs­day last week.

Year 13 stu­dents went into their re­spec­tive schools and col­leges across the county to col­lect their A-level and BTEC re­sults.

Many schools achieved record­ing break­ing years with both higher pass rates and the num­ber of stu­dents in­clud­ing a clean sweep of A* and A grades.

The ma­jor­ity of stu­dents got a place at their first choice univer­sity with many go­ing to the coun­try’s top es­tab­lish­ments in­clud­ing Ox­ford, Cam­bridge, War­wick, Ex­eter and Southamp­ton.

Che­sham and Amer­sham MP Ch­eryl Gil­lan con­grat­u­lated all the A-level stu­dents. She said: “It is your day and though you will have had huge sup­port and back-up from fam­ily, teach­ers and friends, it was you who stud­ied and sat the ex­ams. That is some­thing to be proud of, a real achieve­ment. Good luck to all the stu­dents in the Che­sham and Amer­sham con­stituency and best wishes for what­ever you choose to do next.”

Buck­ing­hamshire County Coun­cil’s cab­i­net mem­ber for ed­u­ca­tion and skills Coun­cil­lor Zahir Mo­hammed also praised the stu­dents call­ing them a ‘credit’ to Bucks.

He said: “My con­grat­u­la­tions to all our A-level stu­dents on their re­sults. It’s a day full of an­tic­i­pa­tion for the next step in their ed­u­ca­tion or for their first steps into the world of work.

“They’re a credit to Buck­ing­hamshire and I hope in the fu­ture we can har­ness the skills and knowl­edge they’ve gained to in­vest in our econ­omy lo­cally.”

Rea­sons to be cheer­ful: Amer­sham School’ stu­dents and staff are over­joyed with their suc­cess
