"Results day can be one of celebration and excitement, but also mixed emotions. Whatever your own personal news today I want to congratulate you on all your hard up to this point, and I wish you the very best as you take your next exciting steps.

“I also want to say thank you to everyone - the headteachers, teachers and teaching assistants, parents and carers - who have supported our young people working towards these exams and beyond.”
