GCSE Results Day 2022 – celebrating our amazing young men and young women, schools and parents. Today’s news at a glance ***LIVE***

by Jon WestleyAugust 26, 2022

Welcome to GCSE Results Day on We will be covering as many stories of this special day of achievement for students, schools – and the amazing parents that make almost everything imaginable possible for children, throughout the day as we receive them. We expect the majority of results to be officially released from 12:30 p.m. today.

Below we will be adding direct links to stories as we publish them, so that you can jump straight to your school and the stories that interest you. We are publishing stories as they come in, with the most recent at the top – so scroll down for older stories.

You can always send us a message with stories and photos on the day, or afterwards. These really help us understand how everyone has fared and provides us with the tools to lobby for better support for everyone after the event. It also really helps other students, parents and schools contextualise the day and learn how we can all make things better for each other. If you want to share, please email the team at [email protected]. We would love to hear from you.
