Another successful year for A level students in York

Children’s Services leaders in York today (17 August) are congratulating A level students across the city on achieving an excellent set of results.

Provisional results for York school sixth forms and York College show that the very high standards of previous years have been maintained and initial results for the city indicate that A level results remain consistently amongst the best in the country.

York school sixth forms – All Saints RC, Archbishop Holgate’s CE, Fulford, Huntington and Joseph Rowntree – and York College are reporting strong results including ‘best ever’ performances.

Early results for the schools show that across the board young people will be able to get to the universities of their choice, including those applying to Oxbridge universities and medical courses. This strong position is being maintained despite the significant changes to the content and structure of A and AS level courses this year.

Neighbourhood enforcement action

We are pleased to report that the council’s Neighbourhood Enforcement Officers have been actively pursuing issues across Dringhouses &Woodthorpe ward.

The team has received complaints about worsening litter problems in the area around York College, and in response have been patrolling the area and advising students that littering is an offence.

Previous litter picks in the area near the College have yielded a bumper haul of litter

Previous litter picks in the area near the College have yielded a bumper haul of litter

Whilst on patrol, the team has witnessed littering offences, and have issued:

  • Two litter Fixed Penalty Notices (one relating to College students)
  • Three litter warnings (all related to College students)
  • Two littering offences pending further investigation (both relating to College students)

There are also plans to install a ‘No flytipping’ sign on Moor Lane.

One fixed penalty notice has been issued for cars advertised for sale on the highway.

The team has been dealing with an ongoing noise complaint for dog barking, and has successfully served a noise abatement notice on the residents.

New cycle path takes shape

Progress is being made with the construction of the long-awaited cycle path linking the Revival estate (on the old College site) with the green lane path. The new path, which will run alongside the College playing fields, will provide residents with quicker and safer access to Bishopthorpe and the Knavesmire.

Nearly there!

Nearly there!

Construction of the path could not begin until the local newt population had been trapped and relocated.

York College to take redundant Moor Lane car parking spaces

The Moor Lane Car Park (former Park & Ride site next to Tesco) is now a pay and display car park with 500 spaces run by the York Council.

With the larger and free park and ride site nearby, not surprisingly the car park is little used.

The Council has been approached by the Principal at York College to help facilitate their parking arrangements during the summer period while building works are undertaken on site.

Council officials have agreed that 50 spaces will be provided at a flat rate of £2 per day for use by York College during the period 7 July to 31 August 2014.

A review will take place at the end of this period.
