Schools in Warrington have eclipsed the national average for GCSE results.
There is good reason for the town to celebrate with 84.3 per cent of year 11 pupils achieving five A*- C grades.
This is significantly up on the national results at 68.1 per cent.
66.2 per cent of school leavers in Warrington achieved five A*- C grades including English and maths.
Nationally, pupils gaining five A*- C including English and maths has dropped this year.
In spite of this, results in Warrington are up by 4 per cent.
Clr Colin Froggatt, executive board member for children and young people’s services said: “We are over the moon with this year’s GCSE results and very pleased with all that our young people have achieved this year.
"These results are a credit to all the hard work and determination shown by students and the excellent teaching and support from teachers, school staff, governors and parents.
“Our interim results indicate that Warrington continues to be a borough where a high quality of education is provided and our young people continue to set a shining example.
“Congratulations to everyone who has received results today and last week. We wish all our young people the best of luck for the future.”
