Chi Onwurah, MP for Newcastle Central, gave her congratulations to GCSE students getting their results today, after 18 months of disrupted learning and revised assessments.
Chi said: “I want to congratulate every student receiving their results today. The last couple of years have been very difficult, and you should each be really proud of your hard work and resilience. Today is the beginning of a new chapter for you, whether that be college, apprenticeships, or a mix of part time work and study.
“I want to extend my thanks to all of the teachers and school staff, who have managed to continue providing an education to students despite all the barriers put in their way.”
Students who did not get the grades they wanted should speak to careers advisors and colleges, who may still be able to help them achieve their goals.
North East Bylines would also like to add our congratulations to our GCSE students.
