Huge success for fourth year running

Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy, Runcorn, is celebrating, once again, the fantastic achievements of its Sixth Formers in both A Level and AS Level over a vast range of subjects.

With over fifty students securing places at university this year, OBA’s Sixth Form is going from strength to strength. Having been established four years ago, it now provides an excellent education for students from Runcorn, Widnes, Frodsham, Helsby, Warrington and Liverpool, offering subjects which cater for the needs of all.

This year, OBA sees students living their dream and going off to seventeen different universities up and down the country, following course like English Language, English Literature, Music, Nursing, It and Business, Criminology, Sociology, Sports Science and Creative and Performing Arts, to name just a few.

Student Danielle Stoba, who is off to the University of Leeds to read English Literature and Sociology, was delighted with her fantastic A*AA grades. Joining her at the same university will be Stephanie Bowers who achieved A*A*AB to win her a place to study English and Theatre Studies. Tayler Tunstead secured her place at The University of Liverpool to pursue a degree in Music, whilst the University of Nottingham was Courtney Bennison’s choice to study Criminology and Sociology.

Believing it is never too late to learn is parent Christine McLean, aged 51, who has spent the last two years studying A Levels at OBA. She is now thrilled that she is going to Liverpool Hope University to study English Language and Literature, which has always been her dream.

Vice Principal and Head of Sixth Form, Joan Mooney, said: “Our A Level students worked so hard to achieve such brilliant grades this year and we wish them all the success that they deserve at university or in employment. The tremendous efforts of the students and staff along with the support of parents and carers really paid off.”

AS Level students at OBA also did brilliantly again this summer, setting them well on the road to even more success at A Level next year. Ellis Judge was thrilled with AAA in Physics, Maths and Further Maths, as was Elliott Collins who achieved AAB in French, English Language and History. Sean Boyd who gained AABB in Chemistry, Physics, Maths and English Literature was also one of the first to open his results and eagerly plan the next exciting steps in his education.

Executive Principal, John Rigby, who congratulated students as they realised their successes said: “We are very proud of the huge achievements of all of our Sixth Form students and it has been a pleasure to celebrate with them today. We are all delighted for them and are also excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for them. Education can really change the life chances of students of any age and that is what OBA is all about.”

Professor Toby Salt, CEO of academy sponsor Ormiston Academies Trust said: “We are very proud of all our A Level students, who have worked so hard to gain their results this year. Congratulations to the dedicated staff and students at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy, whose results are helping them to secure places at university or move into future careers. We wish you all the very best in your endeavours.”
