“It is important to remember that when they started these courses two years ago, there were very few resources and limited guidance about standards expected.

“Their teachers have been superb in helping the students to negotiate these challenges.”

Mr Hopkins added: ‘The statistics only tell a part of the story and behind each result there are individual triumphs.”
