Students celebrate success

Students across Portsmouth collected their A Level and BTEC results today.

At Portsmouth College, for example, students and staff celebrated news of outstanding results with an overall pass rate of 97% and 47% achieving the very highest grades at A*-B/Distinction.

They also mean that students from across the city and from all feeder schools are now able to move on to university.

Stephen Morgan, Labour MP for Portsmouth South, said:

“I want to congratulate all those who collected results today in Portsmouth’s further education establishments. The results bear testimony to the hard work and dedication of students across our city’s communities.

I would also like to recognise the commitment of all teachers and staff in supporting the students in their studies.

Results at Portsmouth College, in particular, sustains its now long-standing record of excellent results.

But they also confirm the huge benefit of strong partnerships with local schools and other educational colleagues in the city, ensuring every young person has the opportunity to succeed in life”.
