Hundreds of borough students have been toasting top grades in their A-Level results.
Schools throughout the borough have been posting encouraging results with some outstanding individual success stories.
Early indications show a continued improvement from last year among young people following both academic and vocational qualifications.
Mayor Norma Redfearn said: “I am so proud of our young people and our schools for achieving such tremendous results in their A levels and their vocational qualifications.
“Here in North Tyneside we’re blessed with talented and exceptionally hard-working young people, supportive families and dedicated school staff.
“I would like to say a very big thank you and congratulations to everyone.”
In Wallsend, Churchill Community College headteacher David Baldwin said: “Churchill Community College Sixth Form is once again really pleased with A-Level results.
“We have been able to support students into top universities to study a wide range of subjects as well as supporting students into prestigious apprenticeship and employment routes.
“In addition, we have outstanding Year 12 results including those from Year 12 students who have already completed A-Levels at A* grade due to early entry.”
Student Adam Mann has not only secured a place at Teesside for Television & Film Production but is one of only 20 students out of several thousand applicants to be awarded a Royal Television Society Bursary.
Other successful students at Churchill have either secured their places at the universities of their choice, are embarking on professional degrees in adult nursing, social work, law and primary education or beginning apprenticeship schemes in the NHS, Nissan, North Tyneside Council and a range of other workplaces.
At Longbenton Community College, a large number of students obtained high A*, A and B grades across their subjects, and are set to go to top universities to study a large range of courses in medicine, the sciences, engineering, the arts, business and technology.
Principal Jim Cockburn attributed their success to the high quality teaching within the college and the hard work of the students themselves.
He added: “I wish them well as they embark on their future careers.”
