Students at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy have today received 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 an unprecedented end to the academic year for all schools across the country, in light of Covid-19 and the cancellation of exams this summer.
Amongst some of the individual successes this year were:
Kathryn Evans, Principal at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy, said:
“We have been so proud of the way in which all of our students have pulled together during such an unusual and uncertain time, showing such resilience and positivity. The grades that our Year 11 students have achieved today are recognition of five years of hard work and commitment and all of our students should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved. I wish them all every success in the next stage of their education and look forward to welcoming those who are returning to the sixth form.”
Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy is proud of the community it serves and was pleased to be able to support extended members of the OBA Family during the months of lockdown. Working with Runcorn Police, Halton Haven and the Queen of Hearts Pub, the academy donated 20 ‘essential’s bags’ containing food and other necessities for local residents, in addition to 120 goggles and 2,000 aprons and gloves to be used as PPE for front line workers.
