Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy is dedicated to achieving the highest standards of teaching and learning, and works in partnership staff, families, and the wider school community to ensure students achieve highly and are fully prepared for their next steps.

Principal Nia Salt, said: “Our 2021 Year 11 cohort have shown such commitment, dedication and spirit over the last two years of their studies, and I am delighted that our students are able to collect their hard-earned results today.

“I am very proud of the achievements of all our students, and their hard-work has now enabled them to take their exciting next steps as they move on from the OIEA family. We wish our students the very best of luck with their next steps and would like to thank our brilliant staff, families and wider school community for their ongoing support over the last two years.”

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.
