Students and staff at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy (OBA) are celebrating today following receiving their A-level and Applied results, enabling them to secure places at their chosen/prestigious universities, on coveted apprenticeships and selected jobs.
Despite it being another unusual academic year due to the pandemic, students at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy’s sixth form have achieved some excellent results which reflect the hard work and commitment shown throughout their studies.
Students across the school performed well, with some of the individual standout achievements including:David Allen who achieved a grade A in History, A in Philosophy, A in English Language, and will be going on to study History at the University of Chester.
Principal Kathryn Evans said: “We are delighted to celebrate the successes of our students today as they receive their well-deserved results. College life during the pandemic has been very different to what many of our students expected but the courage and resilience they have shown over the last two years and the continued commitment to their studies, has been truly inspiring. We are very proud of the next steps all our students will be taking, including securing places at prestigious universities, on coveted apprenticeships and in employment positions of their choice.
I would like to thank our students, families, staff and all the wider members of our OBA family for their ongoing support and we look forward to seeing our 2021 cohort go on to achieve brilliant things.”
Head of sixth form, Scott Fenner said: “Although our students have not experienced sixth form as they should have, I am extremely proud of the achievements all students have managed to gain this year. I know that each of them will go on to have a successful future in their many different pathways. We have supported students this year in pursuing their aspiration of becoming paramedics, veterinary and social workers to mention just a few!”
This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the government decided that young people’s grades would be determined by teachers, based on work students produced throughout their course. These grades were then moderated and assessed by external exam boards which awarded the final grades.
