North Northamptonshire Council is wishing all Year 11 pupils across the area who will be receiving their examination results tomorrow, 24 August 2023, the best of luck.

It marks the start of the next stage of many young people’s lives as they move on to new challenges whether that is continuing to study at sixth form or college, moving on to an apprenticeship or other work-based learning opportunity.

I would like to congratulate all pupils in Year 11 receiving their results in North Northants. The dedication and hard work you have shown to reach this point is to be admired.

Receiving your results is important and whatever the outcome, there are many exciting opportunities still to come - from moving on to study A Levels or starting an apprenticeship or training scheme. Whatever path you take, I am sure you will be successful, and I wish you all the best for the future.
Cllr Scott Edwards, the council’s Executive Member for Children, Families, Education and Skills
On behalf of North Northamptonshire Council, we are extremely proud of all the young people locally receiving their GCSE results and equivalent qualifications. I would also like to thank everyone who has helped you reach this point - from your teachers through to parents and carers who have supported you throughout and, I am sure, will be proud of you no matter what your results are.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council

Some pupils may not have received the grades they have hoped for or may still be unsure what opportunity they would like to take up in September, there are many options available, and schools will be able to offer advice, guidance and support. In addition there are plenty of resources available online including information on what happens after Year 11 and Sixth Form places.

There is information on apprenticeships which are available for those wanting to go down this route.

The Study Programme is available as an alternative provision to sixth form or college for learners 16-18 years old. It is a 34-week programme starting in September which is based in Kettering and Wellingborough. As a part of the course learners will engage in employability sessions, maths, English, work experience, and enrichment opportunities. The aim of this programme is to prepare young people for further learning and work. For more information, please call 01604 367119 or email the Study Programme team on [email protected]
