Richmond Council praises students for A-Level and GCSE achievements
12 August 2021
Richmond Council is congratulating all A-Level and GCSE students following the receipt of their results this week.
Cllr Penny Frost, Chair of the Education and Children’s Services Committee, said:
“I would like to offer my congratulations to all those who have received results this week and wish everyone the best for the future in these uncertain times.
“Our young people have been through a uniquely difficult period of their education – constantly having to adapt to lockdowns, remote learning, and changes to their school and social lives. As well as education challenges, many of them will have struggled with their mental wellbeing during this time. I’m extremely proud of the way they have overcome these challenges and the results we have seen this week are a well-deserved recognition of their resilience and hard work.
“I would also like to offer my thanks to all our schools, teachers, parents and everyone else who has supported our young people to achieve so much during the past year and a half.”
If you are disappointed with your results, you do not need to feel alone. Please speak to your school for support and information about other opportunities, or speak to someone you trust. For free, safe and anonymous mental health support, you can speak to Kooth.
From 16 to 31 August, any young person who has received their results and is seeking careers advice can call the Summer Support Careers Advice Helpline on 07540 156905 or 07864 612857.
