The results are in!

High school students across Stockport are celebrating after receiving their GCSE results yesterday (22 August 2019).

Provisional results from across the borough indicate that 66.9% of students achieved a grade 4 or above, and 46.4% achieved a grade 5 or above in English and mathematics combined. A national average is not yet available.

Councillor Colin Foster, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Children Family Services and Education said: “I’d like to send my congratulations to everyone who has received their GCSE results. These reflect the years of hard work and dedication each of you and school staff have put in, and you should be extremely proud of your achievements. I wish you all the very best of luck as you move into the next stage of your learning or into your chosen career.”
