A Level Results in Leicester

Congratulations to all the Leicester kids with their record breaking results. Good for them. I'm sure Keith Vaz would also be congratulating everyone, and reinforcing the fact that it is hard work and better education that is to be applauded. A special congratulations to Gateway students and good luck to everyone for the GCSEs next week.

Looking at the results table for Leicester and the county it doesn't take much to see the glaring inconsistencies between different colleges' results. This is a desperately upsetting situation that must be addressed.

But in the meantime let us not detract from the pride all the students should be feeling, whatever their results. Of course there are debates to be had about the education system, but why do we insist on having them when there should be celebrations? The people who do show themselves as having no respect for the students who have gamely taken everything the government, exam boards, local authorities and colleges have thrown at them (you have no idea) and come out fighting for their future.

Check out the coverage and results tables from the Mercury.
