Schools across Warwickshire expecting above average GCSE results

Leamington Editorial 24th Aug, 2017   0

Thousands of the county’s pupils are celebrating after opening their GCSE results.

This year saw the exam results released in a different format, with English language and literature and maths reported as numbers.

Some 5,600 16 year-olds across the county sat their exams this year, and opened their results as a mixture of number and letters.

Local headteachers and the county council are anticipating Warwickshire’s results will once again be again above the national averages.

Warwickshire County Council spokesman for education, Coun Colin Hayfield said: “Congratulations to everyone collecting their results.

“The long hours of hard work and dedication of all the teaching staff, plus the support of parents, that contributed to the students’ success should also be celebrated.

“It will be some time before we know the full validated results for Warwickshire but we are optimistic that the vast majority of Warwickshire pupils will have reached their target grades.

“I wish everyone the best of luck for the future whether that will be in continued full-time education, an apprenticeship or training.”

Anyone who failed to get the grades they hoped for can contact Prospects Independent Careers Services for free advice. Call 01926 461600 to find out more.
