OBA Students Celebrate GCSE Success!

Students at OBA are celebrating today following receiving their GCSE results, enabling them to embark on the next chapter of their education.

Staff and students joined together to celebrate the many achievements, at the end of what has been another unusual year in light of COVID-19 and the cancellation of examinations.

Despite this, the academy, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), has seen continued success with some of the standout individual achievements including:

  •  Joe Baxter who successfully achieved grade 9 in Maths, Geography, History and grade 8 in Chemistry, Physics.
  • Niamh Watcham who successfully achieved grade 9 in English language, English Literature and Dance, grade 8 in Spanish and grade 7 in Maths.
  • Emily William who successfully achieved grade 9 in Art and Film Studies, grade 8 in Maths, English Language and English Literature.
  • Joshua Oaks who successfully achieved grade 9 in English Literature, grade 8 in English Language and Chemistry, grade 7 in Maths, Physics and Geography.

Kathryn Evans, Principal at Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy said:

“We are delighted to be celebrating with our Year 11 students today and congratulate them on their results, which are hugely deserved. They have worked extremely hard over the last two years, and throughout their time at the academy, and it’s fantastic to be celebrating their achievements today. 

“It has been another unusual year with the pandemic and we are aware that many of our students have had to deal with difficult personal challenges alongside their studies, but have nonetheless shown brilliant spirit, courage and resilience throughout. We are so proud of them all. 

I would like to thank our students, families, staff and all members of the wider OBA family for their ongoing support and we look forward to seeing our students progress on to the next stage of their education and fulfil their goals.” 


This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government decided that young people’s grades would be determined by teachers, based on work students produced throughout their course. These grades were then moderated and assessed by external exam boards which awarded the final grades.
