Students in South Gloucestershire are celebrating success in their GCSE results and we are delighted with their achievements.
These results represent a huge amount of hard work and commitment by students, staff and school leaders across all seventeen secondary schools during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our thanks also go to parents for supporting their children throughout the last eighteen months to ensure they secure success.
Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Employment Councillor Erica Williams said: “I want to congratulate all our students who are receiving their results today in what has been a challenging eighteen months for them because of the global pandemic.
“It is always a nervous moment to open that envelope but we know that they have worked extremely hard to achieve these grades and they should be very proud of their individual successes. Our thanks go out to all pupils and schools staff for their hard work and dedication.
“Going forward is a big step for students after their GCSEs, whether they are moving on to sixth form, college, apprenticeships or employment and I want to wish them all the best of luck whatever they go on to do.”
We would remind students and parents that if they are still unsure about their next steps, Post 16 advice and guidance is available through their school, at College, via Careerpilot online or via the National Careers Service Helpline for Teenagers on 0800 100 900.
