Congratulations to all local students on their GCSE results. Many schools in the region reported their best ever results. Flegg High and Lynn Grove School both achieved their best ever results, whilst Ormiston Venture Academy had an 11 point boost. Across Norfolk results tended to improve with the new academies in particular showing impressive results.
These results show that the academy programme is working; helping to give more and more children the opportunities, they deserve. We already have a number of highly successful schools in Norfolk; with strong identities and teaching systems and I am delighted that that is increasingly becoming the standard across Great Yarmouth and Norfolk. I am passionate about supporting local schools to provide the very best education to our young people.
