Council congratulates A level students in Bucks

After years of hard work and months of tense waiting, students across Buckinghamshire today (16 August) find out their A level results.

Mike Appleyard, Buckinghamshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, wanted to commend the students on their efforts leading up to this momentous day.

He said: “My personal congratulations go to all our A level students on their results. This is a very exciting time for these young people, whether they are about to go to university, college, or into work, and I hope they embrace all the opportunities available to them.

“It is a key priority for Buckinghamshire County Council to provide our young people with the very best start in life and, as ever, we are proud of the achievements and hard work of our students, not to mention the incredible efforts of the teaching staff who support them.

“I hope in the future we can harness the valuable skills and knowledge they’ve gained to invest back into our economy locally.

“Just as important, of course, is the excellent work our schools do to help so many of our students become the well-rounded individuals they are, leaving them well prepared for adulthood and the world of work. Bucks students have an excellent record when it comes to finding work after education.

“Information about the overall performance of students will be confirmed later this year, however, early indications suggest that Buckinghamshire has maintained its usual high standards compared to national results which is great news.

“There’s lots of information available for young people on next steps, regardless of the position they are in. This includes advice from schools and colleges themselves, the National Careers Service (helpline number 0800 100 900), UCAS ( and WANNABEbucks (

“I sincerely wish all our A-Level students the very best as they prepare to take their next steps in life.”
