The End Point Assessment marks were awarded by an independent moderator from City & Guilds who visited The Academy for the day and quizzed students about their skills.

Beauty apprentices also sat a theory exam with 33% achieving distinction.

These apprentices are employed in salons, barbers and spas in Scarborough, Malton, Kirkbymoorside, Driffield, Whitby and Bridlington.

Level 2 professional standard runs for over a year, so many hairdressers will now progress to Level 3.

Academies are on Roscoe Street, Scarborough and at Whitby Sixth Form with offices in Norton.

Seventy apprentices, trainees and students are enrolled this academic year on City & Guilds courses, with some are also working towards a maths and English qualification.

Academy Managing Director, Lindsay Burr, said: "We are delighted that the moderator awarded these grades.

"We are very proud of the standard our apprentices have achieved.

"Thank you to all the business owners and managers that work with us and thank you to our dedicated team.’
