Exams over but still more to learn.
Malcolm Gillespie, executive director of the Coventry and Warwickshire Learning and Skills Council, said pupils would be making the "right decision" by staying on in education.
He said their GCSEs had already "opened up a world of different future career options", adding: "Whether they decide to stay on at their local sixth form, go to college or earn and learn at the same time with a modern apprenticeship, as long as they continue in education, then they are making the right decision."
He said there was "a wealth of courses" available locally, from A-levels to NVQs.
The LSC is responsible for the planning and funding of all post-16 education and training, with the exception of higher education.
Chairman Ursula Russell said: "We are all extremely proud of the achievements of pupils in Rugby, and we are here, alongside the Connexions Service and school careers advisers, to offer them advice and guidance they need to follow a positive career path and continue learning."
