Students praised for hard work and encouraged to explore their options on results day

Published 25 August 2020

Wiltshire Council is congratulating students picking up results today (20 August).

Schools have worked hard to support students during the COVID-19 lockdown as young people had to study at home and could no longer take their exams. As students receive their results today they are being reminded there is a wide range of support out there to support next steps.

Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Skills said: "I want to recognise the incredible dedication of our schools and our hard working students, who faced unprecedented disruption and uncertainties in their GCSE year. You have all done an amazing job.

"Congratulations to all those receiving results today despite the extraordinary circumstances. If the results are not what you expected and you are unsure of your plans for September, there is help and support out there, so I would encourage you to explore the opportunities and help available as you consider your next steps."

Support and information is available from schools about sixth form and from all local colleges about further education courses. The Work Wiltshire (https://workwiltshire.co.uk (opens new window)) website also offers advice about further education or apprenticeships (https://workwiltshire.co.uk/apprenticeships/ (opens new window)). There is also a dedicated parents page (https://workwiltshire.co.uk/parents/ (opens new window)) to help support young people in their care make the decision with choices post-16.
