Exam celebrations for students and staff took place across Bedford Borough today (August 10, 2021) with provisional figures showing that nearly 97.6% of our pupils achieved at least 1 A* to E grade and 83.2% of our students achieved three or more A* to E grades at A-level.
Cllr James Valentine, Portfolio Holder for Education and Children’s Services, said: “Well done to everyone 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 further and higher education.
“If you didn’t get quite what you were hoping, don’t panic, there is plenty of support and advice available.
“It’s been a very difficult year for everyone, so a big thank you to all the parents, carers and teachers who supported and helped our students.”
There is advice for students about their next steps available from UCAS at www.ucas.com.
There is also support available for students at the Jobs Hub, which provides advice about education and training options, help with skills, and job search assistance, and can be contacted on 01234 223510 or firstname.lastname@example.org
