The waiting is finally over as students across Central Bedfordshire received their A-Level results.

Early indications for provisional results show that all 10 schools showed an improvement resulting in an increase in the average points score per entry across Central Bedfordshire of 3.4 points to 32.1 (C+ grade).

The average score for academic students (which includes those doing extended A-Levels) is 32.2 (C+ grade), up 3.4 points from 2017. Technical/vocational students’ average score is 36.0 (Distinction grade), up 2.3 points from last year.

There have been plenty of individual success stories too.

Manshead CE Academy in Dunstable is celebrating 40 per cent of students achieving top grades A*-B, including 15 per cent of students who topped that with A*-A results.

All Saints Academy, also in Dunstable, are celebrating an improvement in A-Level qualifications. Fourteen students have university places, and some are now pursuing apprenticeships in a vocational setting, for example in the Fire Service and midwifery.

At Vandyke Upper School in Leighton Buzzard one particularly impressive pupil, Julia Debicka, arrived in England from Poland aged seven speaking no English. She has achieved four A-Levels graded A*, A*, A and B.

Two students from Harlington Upper School will be studying at the University of Oxford, with many others studying prestigious courses such as medicine, engineering and mathematics at top universities.

At Stratton Upper School in Biggleswade, William Hyde took four A-Levels and achieved three A* grades and a B. He will now go on to read Physics at Durham university.

Among the many successful students at Redborne Upper School in Ampthill were twins Alex and Matthew Cummins. Alex is to study computing at Imperial College in London and Matthew will read Natural Sciences at Cambridge.

Councillor Steven Dixon, Executive Member for Families, Education and Children, said: “Congratulations to everyone who collected their results. Overall marks continued to rise in Central Bedfordshire.

“These results are down to the hard work of the students, teachers and other staff at our schools and the pupils’ families. After all of the waiting, I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the summer and I wish them the very best of luck whatever option they choose next.”
