City of York Council education leaders have congratulated students across the city on their GCSE results today (Thursday).

Cllr Bob Webb, the council’s executive member for children, young people and education, said: “Huge congratulations to all the students who have received their GCSE results today.

“The excellent grades achieved across the city are testament to the hard work of the students, but also their families and teaching staff who have supported them throughout their learning journey.

“I hope their results provide a springboard to the next stage of their learning or help them to secure the training or job opportunities they’re hoping for.”
