Amazing A Level Achievements

Sixth Formers in Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy, Runcorn, are celebrating their amazing A Level achievements after receiving an outstanding set of results which will take them forward to the next stage of success in their adult lives.

Yet again, OBA’s results are even better than in previous years and the Year 13 students have achieved phenomenal success with an overall 99% pass rate. The hopes and plans of so many will now come to fruition as over forty students head off to university to study their chosen course.  


This year sees OBA’s students being welcomed onto university courses such as French, Biomedical Sciences, Mathematics, Medicinal Chemistry with Pharmacology, Adult Nursing, Modern European Languages (Spanish with Chinese and French), Politics, Psychology, Law and Fine Art, to name just a few.  They will be attending Universities across the country, including Russell Group universities such as Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Lancaster.


Amongst those celebrating their successes were Josh Hewitt who bagged five A Levels in Maths, Further Maths, Accountancy, Business Studies and Physics, scoring an A*, 2 grade As, a grade B and a C.  Chloe Lidgard was delighted with her four A*s, and Matt Horton and Matthew Oakes, who each sat four A Levels, took great pleasure in celebrating their two As and two Bs. Holly Kearney was totally thrilled with her A* in Fine Art as well as securing an A and a B, as was Ben Riley who achieved 4 A* grades. Amber Rogers achieved four grade As, Michael Carney celebrated an A* and two As, whilst outstanding linguists, Holly Godden and Alex Dewdney, who were thrilled to achieve excellent results, are now very excited to be attending The University of Liverpool to follow their linguistic dreams.


Vice Principal and Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Mooney, said: “We are really proud of our students who worked so hard to achieve these excellent results.  It’s great to see the delight on so many faces as they realise they have secured their place at university, an apprentice or post in employment.   We wish them every success and happiness in the future.

Principal, Mr Wyss, said: “The whole OBA family is delighted with the students’ successes and I would like to thank all their parents/carers as well as the teaching and pastoral staff for all their support and dedication.  We are lucky enough to have seen so many of them grow from children into young adults with a very exciting and positive future ahead of them.

Professor Toby Salt, CEO of Ormiston Academies Trust said: It is our absolute priority at OAT to ensure that every student fulfils their potential, no matter what their background, and we are thrilled to see these results today.  Students, parents and staff at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy should be very proud of their achievements and we wish everyone the best of luck with the next phase of their education or vocational path.”
