Record GCSE results in Hartlepool

Hartlepool has reason to celebrate after young people there achieved some of the best GCSE results in the town’s history.

“The town’s 16-year-olds have every reason to feel proud of their achievements, which reflect a lot of hard work by themselves and by the staff in their schools."

– Dean Jackson, Assistant Director, Performance and Achievement

Almost 1,200 students have received their results. Early indications show the number of Hartlepool students achieving five or more A-C passes has improved. Over 81% achieved five or more A - C grades, over 3% more than last year.
