Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield congratulates students on 2016 GCSE results

Anne Longfield, Children’s Commissioner for England said:

“I would like to congratulate students who got their GCSE results today. The fantastic results reflect the hard work, ambition and drive of young people across England and they should be immensely proud of their achievements.

“I wish them all the very best for the future as they go on to further develop their skills and realise their ambitions through the many options that are available to them.”
