Congratulations to all our students!
What a year we have had but, at last, we can properly congratulate our students on reaping the rewards for all their hard work. The Welsh Government has today made a u-turn to award A level, AS level, GCSE and Welsh Baccalaureate grades on the basis of the centre assessed grades (CAGs) that their teachers submitted for them.
Our students have had to deal with unprecedented times and I am delighted that common sense and common decency have prevailed. Our students and our teachers can now move forward with confidence.
My heartfelt thanks to the parents, governors, friends, colleagues and local politicians who have supported our cause over the last few days. Thanks to all our teachers for their commitment and optimism. And special thanks to all our students for their unstinting patience. So impressive!
