Reading Pupils Celebrate GCSE Results

PUPILS across Reading are celebrating a strong set of GCSE results.
At this stage there are no national statistics to make direct comparisons and it is difficult to compare results with last year.

However, early indications from schools are that 66% of students in Reading schools have achieved C or above in both English and Maths. This is clearly an improvement on the closest equivalent measure from 2015 when 57.5% gained 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths.

Councillor Tony Jones, Reading's Lead Member for Education, said:
"Congratulations to all Reading pupils who have achieved some fantastic results.
"We are seeing some great GCSE results at schools across the borough against a backdrop of a national downward trend.
"Of course, there will be pupils who haven't received the results they were hoping for and I would encourage them not to panic and to take advantage of the help and advice available to them.
"I would also like to thank the borough's teachers whose hard work and dedication have helped young people achieve their results."
