Congratulations to all our students on GCSE results day!

Students across Brighton & Hove are celebrating their achievements on GCSE results day today.  

For the first year since 2019 assessments have been carried out this year by exam boards rather than by schools and colleges. 

 The chair of the council’s children, young people and skills committee, Councillor Hannah Clare, said: 

“I want to congratulate all our students today – not just our GCSE students but all our young people in Year 11. Our students have done incredibly well this year. 

“You all should be very proud of everything you’ve achieved and I hope you are excited for whatever comes next.  

“Young people getting results today  have been through some very difficult times because of the pandemic. You have  shown tremendous resilience and dedication. 

“Staff at our schools, colleges and independent training providers have risen to the challenges they have faced, and I’m really grateful for all their hard work. 

 “I wish all our students the very best of luck for the future. 

“For anyone who needs extra support, our schools and colleges are ready to help you. Please make sure you take advantage of the support offered by our Youth Employability Service and our Youth Employment Hub if you need them too.”  

The city’s Youth EmployabilityService is online today until 5pm and in person until 4.30pm at the Youth Employment Hub at Montague House in Kemp Town:

The chair of the Brighton and Hove Secondary Headteachers Group, John McKee, said:  

“Schools have worked in partnership, closely and collaboratively, to ensure that every child in our city has access to a good education and is able to make strong progress.  

“We take collective responsibility for a set of exams results that reflect great levels of attainment and achievement across all schools in Brighton and Hove.  

“We are particularly proud of the ‘Class of 2022’ because of all that they have endured during their journey through Secondary School.  

“Today’s results reflect the hard work and tenacity of fantastic group of students, and an unerring commitment from all schools to joint practice development and partnership for the benefit of every young person in our city.”
