A level results
Posted on Thursday 15th August 2019
Councillor Debbie Wilcox, Leader of Newport City Council, has congratulated Newport students on their exam results today.
"For many young people, today will be the start of a new chapter in their lives as they move on to the university, other training opportunities or the world of work. They will have worked hard to reach this point and I would like to wish them well for the future.
"It's a special day for me personally as my godson, a pupil at a Newport school, has achieved wonderful results and has a place at King's College, London, to study physics."
Councillor Gail Giles, the council's Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, added: "Well done to all our pupils and credit must go to their teachers, other school staff and governors for their dedication and hard work as well as parents, carers and guardians for their support.
"Some students will not have got the results they wanted but I would urge them not to panic and speak to their teachers and parents about the many options and opportunities that will be available to them."
