Kathryn Evans, Principal at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy, said:
“We have been so proud of the way in which all of our students have pulled together during such an unusual and uncertain time, showing such resilience and positivity. The grades that our Year 11 students have achieved today are recognition of five years of hard work and commitment and all of our students should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved. I wish them all every success in the next stage of their education and look forward to welcoming those who are returning to the sixth form.”
