Flintshire schools celebrate GCSE Results
Students across Flintshire are celebrating today as they receive their GCSE results.
Councillor Ian Roberts, Leader of Flintshire County Council and Cabinet Member for Education and Youth, said:
"The Council is very proud of all of our year 11 pupils on their hard work to achieve the grades that they have received this summer. In a year of unprecedented challenge, they have worked hard to achieve their goals. I am very proud of them for the resilience and dedication they have shown.
“There has been a robust process across the system to ensure that students are awarded the qualifications they deserve and to enable them to move to the next step of their career.
“I wish them every success in their next steps and encourage them to continue to work hard and aim high.”
Chief Officer, Education and Youth, Claire Homard, said:
“Our learners have continued to work hard over the last twelve months, even with the challenges presented by COVID. This has been a year like no other year for our learners!
“I would like to express my thanks to parents and carers for the support and guidance they have given their children, particularly during periods of remote or blended learning. I know how positively families have engaged with our schools in responding to these new ways of learning.
“I want to also thank our school staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the year to ensure that our pupils are given every opportunity to succeed. In particular, they have shown great commitment to implementing this year’s new process of Centre Determined Grades.
“It is a privilege to send my congratulations to all of our GCSE students. They should be enormously proud of their achievements. I wish them every success as they take on new challenges.”
