Elin Weston, Haringey Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, said: “Our students have worked incredibly hard and deserve huge respect for their amazing A-level results. It’s brilliant to know that of every three A-level exams taken in Haringey, two resulted in a grade A*, A or B. I wish each and every one of our A-level students well in the next chapter of their lives as they go on to university, apprenticeships or a gap year. I would also like to thank teachers, school staff, governors and parents across Haringey for the incredible support they have given to young people at such an important time in their lives.”
‘We are working around the clock to give every young person the best start in life. That particularly means giving more young Haringey residents the chance to study technology, engineering and maths so they are at the front of the queue for the high-tech jobs of the future.”
