GCSE results 2022 in Manchester: students share their achievements at Co-op Academy in Blackley

We visited Co-op Academy Manchester to talk to students and the principal about their GCSE results this year.

Students across the country headed into schools to collect their GCSE grades.

GCSE results day is always the last Thursday of August and today marks the important occasion, with many students arriving at schools across the North West and beyond to pick up their grades.

Chris Beard, principal of Co-op Academy Manchester in Blackley, said: “There’s no getting around it, in the past two years, education has been really disrupted for our young people.

“It’s so amazing to be here celebrating in person some amazing results and actually our best external exam results ever.”

We spoke to some of the students for our video report.
