Gavin Williamson – 2020 Comments on GCSE Results

The comments made by Gavin Williamson, the Secretary of State for Education, on 20 August 2020.

Young people getting their results today can feel incredibly proud of all they’ve achieved in the face of immense challenge and uncertainty.

This is an exciting day and young people now can look forward to taking their next steps, whether that is returning to schools and colleges in September to do A levels or our brand new T Levels, or taking one of the many other routes available like starting an apprenticeship.

I also want to pay a special tribute to teachers and school leaders this year who have shown dedication, resilience and ingenuity to support their students to get to this moment.
