Students across the city have been receiving their GCSE results today. Sheffield City Council would like to praise all our schools and students for their efforts and hard work.

Nada Muflehi, 16 from Forge Valley School achieved one A*, two As, three Bs, a C and  an 8 in English Literature, and  7 in English Language and Maths. She said: “I am really proud and didn’t expect these results at all. I’m really looking forward now to going to college to study Maths and Science.”

Councillor Jackie Drayton, Sheffield City Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Families said: “Following last week’s A Level results I think it’s absolutely fantastic to see so many young people also celebrating achieving great GCSE results.

“Congratulations to all the students and many thanks to those who have supported them along the way – their schools, school governors, school staff, and parent’s carers and friends. I know how much hard work will have gone into these exams.

“These fantastic results come at time where there continues to be a number of changes in the education system. We will continue to work with Learn Sheffield and all our schools to manage these changes and to boost standards further.”

Changes to GCSEs mean that is impossible to compare results with previous years. 2017 is the first year where English and Maths GCSEs in England are graded from 9 to 1, with 9 being the top grade.
