Congratulations to Norfolk's A Level and vocational students
13 August 2020It’s been a challenging year for students across Norfolk and today they will be opening their A-Level and vocational results today (13 August) and deciding on what to do next.
Cllr John Fisher, cabinet member for Children’s services at Norfolk County Council, said: “Congratulations to all the Norfolk students receiving their A Level and vocational results today. Although students were not able to sit exams this year, I hope they will be satisfied with the grades they have worked hard for. They have shown remarkable resilience during an extraordinary time. Studying at home with the support of teachers and families must have been a very different experience.”
“The best of luck to those students who will be heading to the university or the job of their choice. For those who haven’t received the results they hoped for, there are plenty of options out there. This could mean heading to a different university, studying a new course or starting their working life with an apprenticeship.”
“We have high aspirations for education in Norfolk and today is a time to celebrate the achievements of our students and teachers.”
