Commenting on the GCSE results, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:
“Congratulations must go to pupils and their teachers for their hard work in achieving yet another impressive set of results.
“The fact that these results have been achieved at a time of great reform and change to the exam system is a testament to the effort that pupils have put in and the dedication of their teachers in supporting their pupils to achieve their best.
“Pupils have no doubt experienced particular anxiety around this year’s GCSEs as a result of the rushed and poorly planned introduction of reforms by the Government.
“For teachers, this has increased the pressure on them as yet again they been expected to plug the gap left by the Government’s failure to introduce these reforms in a coherent manner.
“While there is much to celebrate in today’s results, serious concerns remain about the price to the health, morale and wellbeing of teachers and young people in navigating our exam system.”
