On Thursday 11th January, a host of our students came together to celebrate the successful completion of their GCSE English or Maths course.

Across all of those who sat their exams in November, 252 gained a Grade 4 or higher in English with a further 76 achieving that in Maths. 

Liam Layton was one of those. The Joinery student successfully completed his English. The former St Gabriel's RC High School pupil said: “I am delighted with my result! I want to say a huge thanks to my tutors for helping me get the grade I needed.”

Fatiha Ibrahim was another student delighted with her grade. The Health and Social Care student was delighted with her grade. The former Coop Academy North Manchester pupil added: “I am delighted and relieved to have completed GCSE English. It feels great that my hard work has been rewarded.”

Chanel Barber was delighted to have passed her GCSE Maths, and like her fellow students, she was also praised for displaying commitment after just missing out on a pass grade on previous occasions. The former Phillips High School pupil said: “I am very grateful to have passed Maths. The tutors have helped me along the way, and it feels great that my dedication has been rewarded."

Mike Chaloner, Head of Curriculum for GCSE English and Maths at Bury College, said: “I am so proud of all those who have achieved amazing grades in their GCSE Maths and English resits. They have displayed commitment and resilience throughout their time here and have been rewarded with fantastic results.”

English and Maths qualifications are highly valued by employers and universities. They will help you gain the essential skills and knowledge needed to operate confidently and effectively in everyday life and at work and will help you progress to achieve your career goals.
