Students and staff at Ormiston SWB Academy are celebrating today following receiving their A-level results, enabling them to secure places at their chosen universities and on coveted apprenticeships.
Despite it being another unusual academic year due to the pandemic, students at SWB6th sixth form have achieved some excellent results which reflect the hard work and commitment shown throughout their studies.
Students across the school performed well, with some of the individual standout achievements including:
Ormiston SWB Academy is incredibly proud of how its students responded to the pandemic throughout their Year 12 and 13 studies, with many students participating in local support roles, alongside their studies. The academy also had a high take up of online lessons and SWB support strategies, culminating in the strong results achieved today.
Head of SWB6th, Jane Bayley, said: “We are overjoyed to see our students in today receiving their results, which they have worked so hard for over their time with us at SWB6th. We are so proud of the responsible young adults they have become and we look forward to hearing about their successes in their next steps over the coming years, which include a variety of courses at Universities across the UK and some very exciting apprenticeship opportunities.
“Thank you to all of our students, parents and staff for supporting this success over the last two years, we wish you all the best for the next stages in your lives”.
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.
