Well done to all students collecting their A-level and BTEC results today – and good luck to students collecting their GCSE results later this week.

2021 has been another challenging year for all of our children and teenagers with many changes still in place because of the ongoing pandemic.

We would like to remind all of our young people that there is a wide range of support available for all Blackburn with Darwen students as they receive their A-level and GCSE exam results this week.

GCSE results will be available on Thursday, August 12th. Students should check arrangements with their school or college on how to collect their results on the day.
