I have been looking through the GCSE results after another successful year...

Our overall 5+A*-C performance increased by around 4.8% to an astonishing 68.4% of our young people achieving Level 2 qualifications at 16. Looking simplistically at this years raw data the bad news is that when you look at 5+A*-C grades including English and maths the results have stalled after last years' significant improvements. However, when we look intelligently at the scores on the doors and at two or three year rolling averages the picture is quite astonishing and almost every school I've reviewed over the last couple of days has achieved some extra-ordinary results. Clearly, there is more work to do both to understand the results but also to target where we need to concentrate our energy and efforts over the next year to continue to make a difference for young people in Leeds.

Our secondary colleagues have achieved some brilliant results.
