Councillor Linda Tock, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services said: “Well done to all the young people who have taken their GCSEs and received their results today. Well done too to school staff for their tremendous work and to parents, who all help the city’s young people to achieve their potential.

“The improvements since 2019, when pupils last sat exams, is really positive and means more Year 11’s are leaving with higher level passes in both English and Maths.

“Hull City Council continues to work with Academy Trusts through the city’s Learning Partnership, to ensure education in Hull is the best it can be for all of our young people and to give them the best start in life.”
