Results day for GCSE students across Stockport
Students from across Stockport are celebrating after receiving their GCSE results today (25 August 2022).
Councillor Wendy Meikle, Stockport Council's Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Children, Families and Education, said: "Congratulations to everyone getting their results today! It's been a tough few years full of disruptions, and you should be proud of how hard you've worked and of your achievements in this time.
"I'm sure all parents and teachers will join me in celebrating our young people and letting them know that it's okay if they're not sure what the future holds: that they're loved and supported no matter what."
