Success in the education of children depends, at least in some
part, on the involvement of their parents. If a child sees that
their parents are enthusiastic about education, they are far
more likely to view their schooling in a positive light, and be
more receptive to learning.

Qualifications for the future
As the culmination of five years of secondary school, GCSE (or equivalent)
study is crucially importance in laying solid foundations for a bright future.
GCSEs lay the essential groundwork for A-level and university courses.
Achieving the highest possible grades will boost a student’s chances of
being accepted onto the university course of their choice. In addition,
employers look to GCSEs as a key measure of a candidate’s capability.
