Today Monmouthshire’s Year 12 and Year 13 learners are celebrating their examination results, which will put them on the path to exciting futures at universities, colleges and in careers.
In these unsettled times, all four of Monmouthshire’s secondary schools have achieved a strong set of results that will enable students to progress to their next stage of life. Staff are confident that students will gain entry to their preferred higher education courses.
Councillor Richard John, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People and MonLife said: “The awarding of A-levels and AS-Levels this year is part of an unprecedented set of challenges facing our education system in Wales. Given the challenges that our young people have faced over the past few months, I hope that they and their families are really proud of what they have achieved. In these extraordinary times, I hope learners have secured the results they deserve and need to secure the next step in their education or chosen career. These results are the culmination of a huge amount of work on the part of all our students but also their teachers and families, who have done much to support them. I wish our school leavers every success as they embark on their next steps.”
Will McLean, Chief Officer for Children and Young People added: “2020 will always be remembered as the ‘COVID Year’. What should never be questioned is the effort and commitment that our learners have put into their post-16 courses to arrive at this point. I am grateful for all of the support that our schools will have made available to these students, their families and support networks who will have prepared them for today. I want to congratulate everyone on their achievements today and wish them well for their future endeavours.”
