GCSE celebrations for SWB students

  12 August, 2021

Students at Ormiston SWB Academy are celebrating today following receiving their GCSE results, enabling them to embark on the next chapter of their education.

Staff and students joined together to celebrate the many achievements, at the end of what has been another unusual year in light of Covid-19 and the cancellation of examinations.

Despite this, the academy, has seen continued success with some of the standout individual achievements including:

  • Arjun Mandair who achieved a grade 9 in History, English literature and language, geography, mathematics and biology, as well as grade 8s in chemistry and physics, and a distinction * in PE and business studies, amongst a number of other high grades.
  • Amy Simcox secured a grade 9 in English literature and language, history, mathematics and biology, as well as grade 7s in physics and chemistry and a distinction * in P.E. and business studies.
  • Kyle Edwards – who worked remotely through Microsoft Teams for the entirety of his Year 11 studies, as he needed to protect family members by isolating – achieved some brilliant results including a grade 7 in maths, grade 6 in art, grade 5s in English and computing and a merit in Level 2 engineering and P.E.

Rod Hughes, Principal at Ormiston SWB, said:

“Our students have worked incredibly hard over the last two years which has led them to earning these hugely deserved results. We are really pleased to be able to celebrate the achievements of all our students today.

“I would like to thank our whole school community, including our students, their families and our brilliant team of staff for all of their hard work, commitment and support throughout the last year, which has led to our 2021 cohort achieving strong results which will enable them to embark on their exciting next steps.”

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.
