Education leaders, bosses and officials are meeting in Leeds today to discuss ways to boost exam results in Yorkshire and help get children into jobs.

The Yorkshire & Humber Education Summit will see the best ways of boosting learning shared between different areas after education regulator Ofsted found Yorkshire has some of the worst schools in the UK.

The meeting will look at the needs of young people, how best to educate them, how to work with local communities and how to meet the needs of local businesses.

School children will also have the chance to give their say on how to improve their education.

The most recent exam figures for North Yorkshire shows that at GCSE, over 65 percent of pupils achieved 5 A*-C results including English and Maths for the second year in a row. This compares to a national figure of 59.2 per cent and places North Yorkshire in the top 20 per cent of areas nationally.

Meanwhile in York, 67 percent of pupils achieved 5 A*-C results including English and Maths, also placing the city in the top 20 per cent of areas nationally.
