GCSE, A Levels and BTECs... Councillor Liz Brighouse congratulates students

Oxfordshire County Council Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Youth Services, Councillor Liz Brighouse, said: “Congratulations to all students receiving their GCSE, A level, BTEC and other academic results this week. I know how challenging the last year has been for students and teaching staff and it is testament to everyone’s commitment that exams and course work have been completed.

“A levels are due to be published on Tuesday 10 August and GCSEs on Thursday 12 August. I would like to thank all parents and carers for the support they have given to their children during this exam period. Thank you too to all the school staff who have taught, coached and mentored the class of 2021.

“As always there will be some remarkable achievements, some disappointments, and lots of triumphs over adversity. For those students who have not received the results they were hoping for, there is excellent support available both through the schools, and a number of services that offer help for young people. Once again, I would like to wish all our students success in the next chapter of their lives, whatever that may be.”
