Education chiefs have sung the praises of Neath Port Talbot students receiving their A level results today.
Education minister Leighton Andrews, who paid a visit to the college’s Neath campus, said he was delighted with the results.
“There has been a great achievement at this college,” he said.
“At this college we have got someone who has achieved five A* grades and a young girl who is going to Oxford University to study engineering.
“They are very excited about the opportunities now open before them.”
Mr Andrews said he wished all the students the very best as they continue on their learning journey.
“I want all of our young people in Wales to succeed to the best of their ability,” he said.
The council’s director of education Karl Napieralla has also given his congratulations.
“The sound basis for learning set at key stage four has enabled more students to continue with their education beyond 16 and make the kind of progress that these impressive achievements evidence,” he said.
Mr Napieralla also praised those students who had gone from Neath Port Talbot’s comprehensive schools to study at Neath Port Talbot College and congratulated the college on their achievements.
