HEADTEACHERS in Rugby are expecting improved GCSE results today (Thursday), according to a Warwickshire County Council statement.
In 2011, 61 per cent of pupils in Warwickshire schools gained five or more GCSE grades A* to C or equivalent including English and mathematics, compared with the national figure for maintained schools of 58 per cent. The figure was two per cent higher than its results for the previous year.
Cllr Heather Timms, county portfolio holder for children, young people and families, said: “This is such an important and exciting time for those opening their GCSE result envelopes. May I congratulate all students on their achievements and wish them luck for the future.”
Yvonne Rose, county council learning and achievement service manager for the secondary phase, added: “Although many students will be delighted with their results, we recognise that some students may not have achieved the grades that they expected. Excellent support is available to these young people through schools and colleges.”
We will upload as many results and pictures as we can on our website as soon as they are made available.
