"Once again, students have completed their studies under extraordinary circumstances; throughout the year, they have dealt with further national lockdowns and accessing their education online; Some have had to self-isolate, possibly numerous times.

"Despite these challenges, young people have shown their ability to be resilient and to adjust to new ways of learning, they have much to celebrate and be proud of.

“The best of luck to those students who will be heading to sixth form, college, university or starting the job of their choice.

"For those who haven’t received the results they hoped for or who are still not sure of their next steps, there are plenty of options out there, including both academic and vocational routes.

"I am aware that the restrictions of the past 18 months may have impacted on the emotional wellbeing of some students. The council has worked with schools and other partners to develop nationally-recognised resources to support the wellbeing of our young people, and this will remain a priority in the future.

“This is an opportunity to thank all school leaders, teachers and support staff who went above and beyond to ensure students were able to continue working towards their GCSE and post-16 qualification's this year.

"Their commitment to students is commendable."

There are lots of different options available to all students across the county, including help and support.

If you need additional assistance you can call the Exam Helpline at 0800 100 900 between 8am and 8pm, who will be available to help students and their parents.
