GCSE Results Day 2019: Lincolnshire County Council says there's been an improvement in numbers attaining a GCSE pass




Provisional results show an improvement in the proportion of students attaining a GCSE pass in English and mathematics combined with a 2.7 per cent rise from last year, Lincolnshire County Council says.

More than half of the schools showed an increase in this key measure.

Coun Patricia Bradwell, executive councillor for children's services, said: "It's so pleasing to see so many students who have excelled in their GCSE examinations. These are the foundation for a young person's future, whether they stay in in education or move into a training course or employment. Congratulations to all of you and very best wishes for your next steps."

In English and mathematics, the percentage of students achieving at grade 4 or above in each of these subjects has risen from 2018. This is well above the national average.

Heather Sandy, interim director of education, said: "I'm so proud of the achievements of our schools and their students. I understand how much hard work goes into results like these. The high quality of leadership and teaching in our schools ensures that students receive the best possible support to prepare them for these examinations. Well done everyone, I look forward to hearing about your future successes."

Almost half of Lincolnshire schools increased the proportion of pupils who achieved a grade 5 or above, in English.
