BEST EVER A LEVEL RESULTS AT ORMISTON FORGE ACADEMY

Ormiston Forge Academy Sixth Form celebrated their best ever A level and AS level results today, marking yet another year of consistently high academic and personal achievements for students.

The overall pass rate (i.e. the overall percentage of grades A*-E) was 100%. This is an excellent set of A level results for the academy and confirms the academy’s position as one of the top establishments in the area for A level success.

The majority (62%) of the 120 students collecting their results today will attain 3 or more A level passes, 83% with 2 or more and 100% with 1 or more. Attainment is mirrored in vocational subjects with students securing best ever results for the wide variety of subjects on offer at Forge. This represents the success Forge has at delivering both pathways, something which they are very proud of.

There were some outstanding individual performances:

Suhail Mohammed A* A* A A (going to read Maths at University of Birmingham)

Katie Cooper A A B B

Harpreet Kaur A B B

Josh Brookin A* A B B

Dayna Rudge A B B

Jessica Lowe and Leah Sheldon both secured 3 distinction stars at BTEC Level 3 Health and Social Care

Staff and students at the school were obviously delighted with these superb results and they demonstrate the outstanding efforts of both. The large majority of students who have applied to university have been accepted to study the courses they wanted and several students have been successful in their applications to Russell Group Universities.

Principal Andrew Burns said: “We are very happy to have been able to prepare our students with excellent foundations for the next step of their lives. Whether they attend university or enter the world of work I am confident we have given them an excellent start. I congratulate them all.”

He added: “In this year of our best ever A level results the academy has never been a better place to teach and learn. Our students deserve the best and we drive them on to fulfil their ambitions. The work is never over, we will soon welcome a large cohort of new year seven students who will explore and learn and smile and achieve their great results when the time comes.”

Vice Principal in charge of Sixth Form, Mr Craig Cooling said: “Hearty congratulations go out to all of our students on their achievements. I’d like to praise them for their commitment over two years of study. I am particularly pleased that the vast majority have secured places at the universities of their choice and I wish them every success in the future.”

Professor Toby Salt, CEO of the sponsor Ormiston Academies Trust added: “Congratulations to staff and students at Ormiston Forge Academy on their best ever sixth form results. We are very proud of all of our sixth formers receiving their results today and Ormiston Forge Academy students have worked hard to graduate from the academy with a successful future ahead of them. They have received a lot of support from the academy’s excellent staff team which continues to drive up standards and increase student achievement.”Principal with Harpreet Kaur and Dayna Rudge (1)
