Local MP recognises GCSE success

Portsmouth South’s Member of Parliament has welcomed another good year of GCSE results achieved by pupils across the city today. 
The results give pupils a strong foundation on their next steps into further education.
Stephen Morgan MP, who is a regular visitor to local schools and has been a governor at two schools in the constituency, said:
“On top of the good A-level and BTEC results achieved in Portsmouth last week these results today show that the hard work and determination of pupils has paid off. They, along with the teachers and support staff, should feel proud of their accomplishments. 
The schools in my constituency have the most committed and hardworking teachers. These results are testament to their drive to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to succeed in Portsmouth.
I would like to thank all the teachers and support staff for their continued hard work. Once again we are seeing schools across Portsmouth deliver for our communities. 
Stephen, a former pupil of Priory School in Southsea and student at Portsmouth College, added:
“I send my best wishes to those young people and their families who are now preparing themselves for their next steps be it in education, apprenticeship or training.”
