He said: “You have come through unprecedented years of disruption and on your behalf may I acknowledge all the work of so many dedicated teaching staff who have done so much to deliver the best quality education during the pandemic.
“You should be so proud of what you achieve given the difficult circumstances of the last three years.
“Whether you got the results you deserve or you fell just short, there are so many options - your success is never defined by one set of exam results.
“Whatever you do, going to university, to college, into apprenticeships or straight into the world of full-time work, this is such an important moment in your lives.
“But whatever your next move, I wish you the best of luck – and please know that support is available.
“As ever, please get in touch if there are particular issues, good news or anything worth raising with me.
