Within the first eight months of science operations, JWST has already begun to transform our understanding of the high-redshift Universe. In this talk I will review several the key results from early JWST data including (i) the first census of the star-forming galaxy population at z > 9; (ii) spectroscopic confirmation of multiple z > 10 galaxies; (iii) z=16 as the new redshift frontier? (iv) evidence for the rapid formation of massive galaxies and (v) the discovery of the earliest quenched galaxy in the Universe. With a focus on output from the Edinburgh group, I will also strive to give a broad overview of all the key results in this field.
