Education chief’s good luck message to A-level students

August 16, 2016

Wolverhampton’s education chief has issued a good luck message to students collecting their A-levels and other results this week.

 

Thousands of students are due to find out what grades they have achieved at schools and colleges across the city on Thursday 18 August, 2016.

 

Councillor Claire Darke, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “I'd like to wish everyone collecting their A-level results this week the very best of luck.

 

“I hope they achieve the outcomes they were hoping for and are looking forward to their next move, whether that is going on to university or entering the world of work.

 

“Post-16 results in Wolverhampton have improved year on year for the last seven years, with performance by local students consistently in the top 12 nationally. Last year saw record outcomes, and we’re hoping to make it eight straight years of improvement with another bumper set of results this week.

 

“That would be a fantastic achievement and credit to the hard work of students and their teachers.”

 

She continued: “If you don’t get the grades you expected – either because they are better than you hoped, or not quite as good – there will still be opportunities for you to secure alternative placements, not least through the Clearing process.

 

“Careers advisors from Connexions Wolverhampton will also be on hand to help you assess what options are available to you.”

 

The Wolverhampton Connexions Centre on Salop Street is open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 1.30pm-4.30pm, and can be contacted on 01902 773040 during office hours. Outside these times, help and advice is available via www.connexionswolverhampton.co.uk.
