Stunning Sixth Form Success at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy

Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy in Runcorn is enjoying another year of celebrations and excitement as Sixth Formers have achieved a brilliant set of results.


Yet again, Year 13 students have achieved phenomenal success with an overall 100% pass rate, but this year also saw 80% of students achieving A*/A at A Level or Distinction*/ Distinction for Applied Learning subjects.  The students will now be able to fulfil their hopes and aspirations; many are going off to university to pursue studies in their chosen course up and down the country, whilst others have secured apprenticeships and employment across the region.

OBA’s students are going off to university to study for degree courses such as Biological Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science, Adult Nursing, Psychology and Business Studies, Media Studies, Sports Therapy, Social Work and History, to name just a few.  They will be attending universities up and down the country, and living their dream as they enter the next chapter of their lives.


Amongst those celebrating their successes were, Danielle McGough who was delighted with her grades A, B and C in Biology, Chemistry and Maths as well as James O’Day who was celebrated his  A*, A and B grades in History, Sociology and Catering and will now be going on a gap year.


Also jumping for joy were Ebony Gumbs who scored 4 A*s in a range of Dance and Sport examinations, Jack Chambers who was thrilled with his A*, A* and A grades in ICT and Photography and Luke Waterworth who scored A*, A*, A* and A* in Graphics, ICT and Business Studies. Luke will be pursuing an apprenticeship as will Filip Reppel who scored A*, A* A* and A* in a range of ICT and Business Studies. Felip’s apprenticeship will be with local company Adept4.


Head of Sixth Form, Paul Finnigan, said: “These students worked so hard to achieve these excellent results and we are all really proud of them.  They are delighted to have done so well after all their hard work and to have secured their ideal place at university or in employment – they are justifiably thrilled.  On behalf of everyone at OBA, I wish them well and am sure they will achieve even greater success in the future.”

Executive Principal, John Rigby, said: “OBA is delighted with the students’ successes and there were many happy faces as they opened their envelopes.  I would like to thank all their parents/carers as well as OBA’s amazing teaching and pastoral staff for all their hard work, support and dedication.  Well done to each and every one of our former Sixth Form students and the very best of luck; OBA is proud to have played a part in your success and we will enjoy hearing about your many future achievements.”

In addition, Year 12 students well on the way to successful A Level results were many students who picked up AS results.  Matthew Kyprian achieved A and A in Maths and Psychology, Niamh Allanson who scored two As in Maths and Further Maths and Emma Bygrave who scored an A in History. These students are in OBA’s Oxbridge and Medical cohorts and have made a very good start on the path to achieving their aspirations.
