Bradford A-level results rise, early data suggests

Bradford College A Levels 2014

Bradford College students celebrate exam result success

Early data suggests an overall rise in excellent A-level results across the Bradford region.

The data is not yet complete, but early signs have indicated that grades in Bradford may well have improved from last year while elsewhere in the country that is not necessarily the case.

Cllr Ralph Berry, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Children’s Services, said: “It is too soon to provide a full picture, but early figures indicate that the performance of students and schools at A-level has risen overall in the Bradford District this year compared with last.

“If this proves to be the case, it could mean Bradford has bucked a less positive trend nationally – which is some achievement.”

Bradford schools have celebrated outstanding individual student successes and some have performed beyond expectations.

A third of all students at Bradford College for example, achieved a grade B or better with 98% of students from the Centre for Academic Studies receiving an overall pass.

It was 2% greater than last year, with 68 A* or A grades being awarded.

Cllr Berry added: “Several schools have done even better than expected and all students deserve to be congratulated for their achievements, as they are a credit to themselves and their families, their schools and the district as a whole.”
