hazel Blears MPHazel Blears, Labour MP for Salford and Eccles, said: “We’ve had another year of fantastic exam results at Salford City College and I want to say a big well done to the students for all their hard work

“It is great to hear that the proportion of students getting the highest A-level grades is up on last year.

“Students taking both A-Levels and Advanced Vocational qualifications can be proud of their achievements and I wish them all the very best for the future.

“I also want to thank staff and parents who have dedicated time and effort to supporting students.

“I know that not everyone will have achieved the results they might have hoped for and I would encourage any student who is unsure about what to do next to get some advice.

“They can call student services at Salford City College on 0161 6315000, call into one of the special clinics being held at the Pendleton and Eccles campuses until 2.30pm today and tomorrow, or ring the national advice helpline free on 0808 100 8000.”
