For the fourth year running, students at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy are celebrating another set of outstanding GCSE results which are, once again, above national averages.
With an amazing 84% of students gaining a grade A*-C in English and 67% in Mathematics, 63% of OBA’s Year 11s achieved one of the top grades in both subjects and nearly three quarters achieved five good GCSE grades. Almost 50% of students gained one or more A*/A grades and over two thirds of students achieved the highest grades across all subjects.
Achieving eleven A*/A grades, were Ellie Mogg and Sarah Taylor, whilst Emma Bygrave and Niamh Allanson and Carrie Clarke each secured ten A*/As. Owen Egan was delighted with his nine outstanding A*/As, as were Megan Hawkins, Matthew Kyprian and Annabel Savage with their eight A*/As. Amongst his brilliant set of thirteen top grades, William Vichos was delighted to score an A* in Greek, which he is now studying further at A Level.
Principal, Mark Wyss, who enjoyed celebrating with the Year 11s, said:
“Our students have worked so hard for these results and they should be very proud of their tremendous achievements. They attended so many extra lessons after school and at weekends to ensure the very best results possible. I would like to congratulate each and every one of them for all the effort they put in to secure such brilliant grades. I would also like thank their parents/carers for their invaluable support, as well as my staff for their total dedication and expertise. We all work together as one family in OBA to ensure our young people are able to progress to the next stage in their lives as confident and well-qualified individuals.”
John Rigby, Executive Principal, went on to say:
“We are now looking forward to the vast majority of this cohort continuing their studies with us in the Sixth Form. They have opted for a wide range of A Levels and vocational qualifications and I wish them the very best of luck with their chosen subjects. We are all very proud of what they have achieved, but I am confident they have many further successes ahead of them and they will be receiving more congratulations in another couple of years.”
