We’re wishing A level students the very best of luck

Children and families

18 August 2022

The wait is over, and the day is finally upon us. North Northamptonshire Council is wishing the very best of luck to all of our students collecting their A level results today.

The last few years have had their challenges in many ways, but today will mark the end of one chapter and the start of a new one.

Whatever the results bring to our students we wish them every success in their chosen next steps. There are many options that will open many doors and create opportunities for the future.

For students who haven’t achieved the successes they were hoping for, though it may be disappointing today, there are many who have found great success in their lives without A Level grades (including Sir Richard Brandon, Deborah Meaden and Jake Humphrey to name a few).

On behalf of all at North Northamptonshire Council I’d like to say the best of luck to students receiving their A level results today. To those who have achieved what they hoped and worked for I pass on huge congratulations, to those who may be disappointed, though you may take a different route there are many options available to you and you will find success.

A special thanks to all the teachers, tutors, coaches, parents, families, carers and supporters of all of our children who have done everything to get our students to this point.
Cllr Scott Edwards, North Northamptonshire Council’s Executive Member for Children, Families, Education and Skills

Anyone looking to attend university, but didn’t get the grades they need should use the university clearing system. Alternatively, apprenticeships are available for those wanting to go down this route.

NNC are currently offering two traineeship programmes for those coming out of education and looking to gain employment skills.
