Students at Ormiston Park Academy in Aveley 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 are:
Principal, Huw Derrick, Ormiston Park Academy, said:
“We are so incredibly proud of our students and the results they have achieved. They have worked extremely hard over the last two years and I am glad that the results reflect this.
“The academic year came to a challenging and uncertain end, but the way in which our students have responded to the circumstances has been fantastic. They really are a credit to Ormiston Park, their families and themselves.
“This is my final Results Day, and what a way to end! In a difficult year, the students have done remarkably well, and we wish them all the very best of luck as they make the next exciting steps in their education and beyond.”
This is the final Results Day for principal Huw Derrick, who is retiring after 34 tireless years in education. Mr Derrick first joined the school in 2004 and has served as Ormiston Park’s principal since 2014, leading the school through numerous milestones and significant achievements.
