Students across Cumbria in Sixth forms and colleges are celebrating their post 16 exam results. They have shown dedication with the effort they have put into their studies and their achievements are well deserved. We would like to congratulate all young people across Cumbria on the results that they will receive this week and wish them well on their chosen pathways whether that be in higher education or employment, FE College, apprenticeships or continuation in Sixth form.
Vicki Jackson Chair of CASH and Peter Blackburn Vice Chair of CASH agree that “Our students in schools across Cumbria should be congratulated on their exam results that they receive today. They have worked so hard over the last two difficult years, with determination to fulfil their aspirations alongside the staff in schools and with their parents support”.
We thank the Staff who work in schools and congratulate them also on the fruits of their labour. Without the dedication and commitment of teachers and all staff in schools, our students would not have been so successful.
Cumbrian schools have worked together and supported each other to ensure that of our young people receive a high quality education. As in previous years schools across Cumbria have agreed not to use the results to make comparisons between schools whose contexts are very different and this gives us an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our children.
