GCSE and Level 2 students who have attended the schools and colleges in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole will receive their results today, on Thursday 12 August.
The GCSE national results day is slightly earlier this year to give pupils, students and their parents and carers time to plan the best approach for their future.
Councillor Nicola Greene, Portfolio holder for Education said:
“I would like to congratulate all pupils in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole on your results. I am aware of how hard Year 11s have worked in challenging circumstances and I am very proud of you and what you have achieved. I wish you well in your post-16 plans.
“I would like to thank teachers and school and college leaders, who worked very hard to support the students in their GCSE and Level 2 courses.”
Sarah Rempel, Director of Education, BCP Council said:
“I wish the very best of luck to all students who will be receiving their results today, many of whom will be visiting their schools or training centres this morning. I would like to reassure all students that council teams, schools and the college have support teams ready to help you make your next choices for your future.
“I would also like to thank my colleagues in secondary schools, colleges and providers who have worked hard to accurately assess the achievement of our students.”
Many students will have been awarded the grades they expected for their Post 16 plans, whether in training or further education. Students who feel they need further support due to grades being different to their own or their schools’ predictions should contact their education setting immediately for help and advice.
Most schools in the BCP Council area have offered opportunities for students to collect results in person or to have a 1:1 support meeting to discuss future options. There are also organisations including Home - UP in BCP, National Careers Service who offer support online and by telephone: 0800 100 900. In our region, Flying Start Dorset provide guidance and support. Post 16 guidance for students is here
