Praise for students as exam results announced

Cllr Bob Standley, lead member for education and inclusion, special educational needs and disability at East Sussex County Council, said: “Our young people have worked hard to ensure that they were well prepared for their examinations and this is reflected in the results that they have received today.”

“It’s wonderful to see the achievement of our students in East Sussex and it’s a huge credit to their hard work and dedication to their studies. We also want to thank our teachers and support staff in school, as well the support of parents and carers. Our congratulations to them all.”

“The commitment shown by students across East Sussex will provide them with a solid foundation on which to continue their studies and build their future careers. I’d like to wish them the best of luck in the future.”

Parents and young people can contact their school or college for advice on the next steps available. The Youth Employability Service also has information available for 18 year olds at

Cllr Standley continued: “We continue to be mindful of the challenges facing the younger members of our community, particularly when it comes to mental health, and students may find receiving their exam results and taking their next steps more difficult this year.”

“Support is available to those who may be struggling and I would encourage people to seek help if they need to.”
