I was delighted to hear that so many students in Barnsley have received the results they wanted today. Having spoken to many of them since my election in March, I know just how hard they’ve worked and how richly these results are deserved. For those that didn’t get the results they wanted, despite the dedication and work, it really isn’t the end of the world. There are always plenty of other opportunities and chances.
The aspiration of the young people of Barnsley has to always be at the forefront of what myself and the Council do in this town, and it is wonderful to know it has such a bright future ahead, in the hands of all these young people.
Whether they go on to university, go into work, or apply for an apprenticeship, I wish them all the very best and look forward to seeing what they do next.
