Students across the city have been receiving their A-Level results today. Sheffield City Council would like to praise our schools and students for their efforts and hard work.

Students at Longley Park Sixth Form College impressed with a pass rate of more than 96 per cent.

Sophia Spooner, a student at Longley Park Sixth Form College achieved an A in Sociology, B in Sociology and B in Geography. She said:  “I was really shocked that I got the results I need. I’m so impressed I got an A in Sociology. I have proved to everyone that I can do it. I can’t wait to move out and start at Leeds University in September.”

Councillor Jackie Drayton, the council’s cabinet member for Children, Young People and Families said:  “I would like to congratulate students for their A-Level results after working incredibly hard in the run up to the exam period. Sheffield’s young people are really making us very proud and it is great to see so many young people celebrating. It’s an exciting but nerve-wracking time for many young people across Sheffield and I’d like to thank their parents and carers, teachers, school governors and support staff for playing such a vital role in helping them achieve their results.

“I’d like to wish all of Sheffield’s students the very best as they plan ahead for their future.”

Across the city Sheffield schools are on track for another good year with A-Level grades out today showing the city maintains its performance from 2016.

95 percent of students, reported so far, got at least one A-Level grade A*-E. Just under a fifth of students achieved grades AAB or higher, across 3 subjects.
