Hot on the heels of last week's outstanding A Level results, Trafford's GCSE students are celebrating their own examination successes.
The provisional available statistics, from 17 of Trafford's 18 mainstream schools, show:
Trafford schools have bucked the national trend, with increases in the main indicators.
The percentage of pupils achieving 5 or more A* - C grades is up to 91.5%.
The percentage of pupils achieving 5 or more A* - C grades including English and Maths has risen to 72.5%.
The percentage of pupils achieving 5 or more A* - G grades has risen to 98.8%.
The percentage of pupils achieving at least one GCSE pass is now at 99.9%.
Executive Councillor Mike Cornes said: "Once again our students have shown what can be achieved by hard work and commitment, with almost all local pupils leaving school with at least one GCSE. These results see Trafford remaining among the country's best and I congratulate everyone, the students, teaching and other school staff, governors and parents.
"What is particularly pleasing is that as with our A Level results, this success is seen across all our schools. While I am sure everyone involved is extremely proud of their achievements, I know there will be a determination to continue and improve on these excellent educational achievements in the coming years."
