A-LEVEL pass rates at secondary schools across Rotherham were on the up for the sixth consecutive year.
Overall this year, 98.5 per cent of students gained passes, which is 0.5 per cent above the national average and up 0.8 per cent on last year’s figures.
Councillor Paul Lakin, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Families’ Services at Rotherham Council, said: “Our congratulations go to every student who has worked so hard to achieve these superb exam results.
“It is great to see the pass rate rising again in Rotherham along with a number of schools who have seen their results improve.
“We would also like to express our thanks to everyone who has supported them throughout their studies, including parents and carers as well as the staff at all our schools.
“Those combined efforts mean our students are better prepared than ever before to face the future with confidence whether they go into Higher Education or the job market and we wish them every success for whatever path they choose.
“These results again reflect the improvements we have been seeing in recent years in education across the Borough and we are committed to ensuring that upward trend continues.”
