GCSE results have been published today (Thursday 25 August 2022). Public examinations returned this year for the first time since the summer of 2019.

Kirstie Hurst-Knight, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for children and education, said:-

“I would like to pay tribute to the endeavour and determination of all our pupils who have sat GCSEs, the first to be held since 2019. I would like to congratulate them with their results, given the disruption to their education caused by the pandemic.

“I would also like to thank headteachers and their schools and colleges staff, including our virtual school who support our looked-after students. They have shown incredible dedication, and I acknowledge the huge amount of work that schools have undertaken to support all their students, given the challenging circumstances.

“I also acknowledge the excellent support, guidance and direction that other members of our school communities, including parents and carers, have provided for the pupils.

“The pupils’ achievements are a culmination of all the hard work, commitment and dedication that they have shown throughout their studies. I wish them all well in their future endeavours.

“This is such an important period for young people as they move on from school to continued education at school or college, or as they enter further training and employment. We wish all of Shropshire’s pupils every success in the future.”
