Many congratulations to the Wokingham GCSE students who have yet again achieved higher grades than last year’s, defying the national trend of falling passes. This is the third year running that Wokingham borough students have improved their grades.
This year, 70.6 per cent of students obtained five or more A* to C grades, including English and Maths, which represents an increase of 2.8 percent on the borough’s 2015 results.
I recognise the hard work and effort that the pupils have put into their studies. Credit must also be given to teachers and school staff who have done so much to prepare their students for their exams.
This is a remarkable achievement and celebrations are indeed in order.
