Students across Royal Greenwich have received their A Level results having had a year of learning unlike any other.
Hundreds of young people will attend their schools and colleges today, August 10, to collect their grades and mark the end of their A Level journey.
Councillor Matt Morrow, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “This is a challenging period of a student’s life at the best of times, but considering the circumstances over the last 18 months, young people across Royal Greenwich have demonstrated a huge amount of determination and adaptability.
“I want to say a big well done to each and every one of our students. They should be extremely proud of what they've achieved in the face of such adversity. I also want to thank all our school staff and teachers for their hard work and flexibility over the last year, I know it hasn’t been easy.
“Having worked tirelessly to get to this point, I hope our young people take the time to really enjoy themselves and relish in their achievements. If anyone is worried about their next steps, don’t be afraid to ask for advice and guidance from your school.”
Councillor Danny Thorpe, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, added: “I want to offer my congratulations to all our students who have received their results back. What today shows is that this generation of young people are not prepared to be defined by the pandemic, and thanks to their resilience, and the incredible commitment of teachers across the borough, we are in a position to celebrate their success. Thank you to all teachers and school staff, and a massive well done to our students!”
