Councillor Aggie Caesar-Homden, Shropshire Council’s cabinet member for education and skills, has offered her congratulations to students getting their A-level results today (Thursday 18 August):
“This year marks the second year of the A* grade at A level. Early indications are that overall Shropshire’s results are again good and that it looks like being another very successful year.
“We would like to congratulate all the students for their hard work, and appreciate how much they have had to do to achieve their results.
“We would also like to thank everyone who plays a part in our school and college communities across Shropshire. This includes our hugely skilled and committed teachers, headteachers & college principals, governors, support staff, people who contribute voluntarily and, of course, parents and carers who play such an important supportive role.
“We wish all the students receiving their results today every success in the future, including those going through the particularly difficult university application process.”
