Stockport Council has congratulated Stockport’s students on academic performance this week despite another year of disruption.
The last academic year (2020/21) has been extremely challenging for all pupils, parents, carers and staff across the borough. Faced with an unprecedented variety of decisions and anxieties in what have been extraordinary times, the Council would like to thank Stockport’s pupils, teachers, assistants, parents, carers and wider support teams for how they have coped, supported one each other and for always putting the Stockport learners and families first, especially during the pandemic.
However, for those in Stockport who feel that their results are not what they wanted, plenty of help and support is available. Many post-16 pathways are available for students, and the process is very straightforward. The Education and Careers Advice Service is available on 0161 474 2300 for advice on August 12th, from 09:30am–18:30pm with a message service available on all other days.
There is also a lot of support for Stockport residents who are feeling overwhelmingly anxious, stressed or low on results week. For more information, please visit our pages for emotional wellbeing and mental health support.
Cllr Colin Foster, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Family Services and Education said:
“I’d like to wish all those receiving their GCSE, A-Level, and vocational and technical qualification results this week the best of luck. The past eighteen months have really put students under an unbelievable amount of stress and pressure, and all your hard work and dedication should be celebrated today!”
“Stockport is extremely proud of the class of 2021 and wishes them all the best and further successes in their future endeavours.”
