OAT students rejoice after picking up GCSE and VTQ results

  25 August, 2023

OAT students arrived at school gates across the country on Thursday morning to pick up GCSE and VTQ results, which are the culmination of five years’ hard work. 

With the support of staff, families and wider academy communities, OAT students secured qualifications in a range of subjects, enabling them to go on to the next steps in their education journeys.

There was a huge array of success stories to come out of the day, including:

  • Awa Sy, who joined George Salter Academy just 10 months ago new to the country and the English language, and has since excelled. Awa’s family comes from West Africa, and she also spent some time in Italy before arriving in the UK. Awa achieved a remarkable distinction*, one grade 9, three grade 6s, two grade fives and two grade 4s.
  • Alongside the commitments of his role as deputy head boy, Harvey at Ormiston Six Villages Academy achieved grade 9 in English language, English literature, maths, biology, chemistry, physics and history. He also achieved distinction* in performing arts and grade 8 in Spanish and further maths.
  • Tyler Williams at Ormiston Victory Academy secured grade 9s in maths, English, geography and physics, grade 8s in chemistry and biology and a distinction* in business, and has been offered a contract at Norwich City Football Club for next year.
  • Meanwhile Evie Williams at Ormiston Venture Academy achieved an incredible set of GCSE results: four grade 9s, two grade 8s and three grade 7s, topping off an amazing year. Evie is part of Ipswich Town Women’s U21 football team and travels the country to play, earning herself a first team call-up in the process. She has received a scholarship to St Joseph’s College in Ipswich to enable her to continue her journey with Ipswich Town and towards professional football.
  • Rocky Linder at Ormiston Latimer Academy passed all his exams and completed vocational qualifications. He has secured a highly competitive apprenticeship position with Transport for London!
  • Triplets Isaak, Oona and Kaleb Herbert at Tenbury High Ormiston Academy all collected their GCSE results together – lots of celebrating all round for the Herbert household!

Following well-deserved festivities with family and friends, students are now getting ready for apprenticeships, A-levels and more.

Rob Pritchard, national director of education said: “After lots of brilliant outcomes across the trust, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our students, their families, our staff and the whole OAT community for their ongoing support. We look forward to seeing our students progress on to the next stage of their education and fulfil their goals.”
