Councillor John Holdich, council leader and cabinet member for education, skills and university, said: “Young people will have worked extremely hard towards their A-Levels or equivalent and they should be very proud of their achievements.
“Regardless of the grades they achieve, it’s important young people remember there is plenty of support and advice available, whether they decide to go straight in to employment or continue learning at college or university.”
