Sixth form students Kostas and Will celebrate their A-level results

Lord Nelson Sixth Form at Ormiston Victory Academy is delighted to celebrate an excellent set of results in 2020, with Year 13 students achieving excellent outcomes all-round despite an unprecedented end to the academic year.

The Victory Team is particularly pleased that performance across all types of courses – both A-level and Applied General – is strong, with the average grade at ‘C’ for A-level and an average of a ‘Distinction’ for Applied General courses. The Sixth Form, which has continued the strong results achieved in previous years, has welcomed some excellent individual achievements including: 

  • Kostas Harilela who achieved two A* grades and one A grade across Mathematics disciplines and Business Studies
  • William Blackmore who achieved two A grades and one A* across Mathematics and Chemistry
  • Hamza Khizer whose determination across three years resulted in no less than 6 excellent A-levels including Grade ‘A’ in A-level Business Studies, ‘Distinction’ in Business BTEC and a ‘Distinction*’ in Creative Media.

The Sixth Form is also pleased to share the success of its previous alumni this summer, including previous Head Girl Rachel Hondora, who recently graduated with a First-Class honours degree in Law from Cardiff, and Amy Woods, who has graduated with a First-Class degree in History from Kent.

Prior to lockdown, the academy was expecting its highest ever number of students applying to university courses in the new academic year, so with more and more students choosing to engage with higher education they expect to continue to celebrate an ever growing set of brilliant alumni achievements in the years to come.

Ormiston Victory would also like to commend the work of Georgia Challen who, having enjoyed celebrating some excellent A -level outcomes, joins the academy to help GCSE students as part of the academy’s wider support team.

The academy is encouraging students to keep in touch and to inform them of their ongoing achievements.

Principal, Naomi Palmer, Ormiston Victory Academy, said:

“We are excited to celebrate some fantastic results with our students today – I am so proud of what they have achieved – and that we continue to offer a wide range of courses and educational opportunities to suit all needs and aspirations.

“Our Year 13s are an incredibly able group of young people with high hopes for the future and great attitudes to the importance of study. We wish them all well on the next stage of the journey, whatever that might be.”

Head of Sixth Form, Richard Timm, Lord Nelson Sixth Form, said:

“I would like to congratulate all students on a wonderful set of results. I am proud of all students at Lord Nelson Sixth Form whose hard work and dedication during such a challenging time, has paid off with some fantastic outcomes.”
