POLITICIANS from both sides of the council chamber united to praise schools in Bolton for their GCSE and A-level results.
The borough matched last year’s record GCSE result despite grades falling nationally, while A-level passes rose, although the number of A grades fell.
At a meeting of Full Council, Labour’s Kevan Jones and the Conservatives’ Phil Ashcroft both praised pupils, teachers and council staff for the achievement.
Cllr Jones said: “You ‘don’t get ewt for nowt’, and I’d like to register my pride in our young people, they’ve bucked the trend and performed higher than the national average.”
Cllr Ashcroft added: “I’d like to congratulate the young people of Bolton for their excellent GCSE and A Level results.”
