MORE RECORD A LEVEL RESULTS AT ORMISTON FORGE ACADEMY

It was another record-breaking year at Ormiston Forge Academy Sixth Form as they celebrated their A level results, marking yet another year of consistently high academic and personal achievements for students.

63% of students collecting their A level results today will attain 3 or more A level passes (A*-E), 89% with 2 or more and 100% with 1 or more. 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.

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.

Average point score per student for A level this year was 627 compared to last year at 616. Whereas in vocational subjects the average point score per student this year was 554, compared to last year at 519. Schools are ranked on league tables within each local education authority by the average points score per student at secondary school. A-level grade A* scores 300 points, A = 270, B = 240, C = 210, D = 180, E = 150.

There were some outstanding individual performances:

Reece Burgess A*A*AB
Brad Joynes AABB (going to read Law with Criminology at University of Birmingham)
Hayley Jukes AAA* (going to read Psychology at University of Birmingham)
Thomas Bartlett ABB
Kiran Salhan AAB
Dylan Cleary BBC

Chloe Ravenhill and Jack Titley both secured 3 distinction stars at BTEC Level 3.

Staff and students at the school were obviously delighted with these superb results and they demonstrate the outstanding efforts of both, especially considering there were more courses on offer from last year and more students in the year group.

The large majority of students who have applied to university have been accepted to study the courses they wanted and many students have been successful in their applications to Russell Group Universities.

Principal Andrew Burns said: “Consistency is key. Year-in, year-out our post sixteen results are showing that we are setting consistently high standard for our students. They are earning places at good universities and entering the world of work as well-rounded, driven, capable young people. I’m incredibly proud of them all and incredibly grateful to parents, carers and our staff for the support they provide.

He added: “The work is never over, we will soon welcome a large cohort of new year seven students who will start their journey towards academic excellence; we will nurture them, support them and smile with them. It’s a tough road but Forge students deserve the best and we are deeply committed to their dreams and ambitions.

Vice Principal in charge of Sixth Form, Mr Craig Cooling said: “Watching this group of sixth form students grow and mature has been one of the proudest moments of my teaching career, they deserve these results because they have worked incredibly hard to get them. They’ve managed to get into great universities and I wish them all the very best for the future.

He added: “With even more courses on offer and more students than last year we are particularly pleased to have beaten the fantastic results we achieved last year. I believe that we are fast becoming the first choice for post sixteen students who strive for success.

Professor Toby Salt, CEO of the sponsor Ormiston Academies Trust added: “Congratulations to staff and students at Ormiston Forge Academy for their impressive sixth form results. These results are the outcome of a lot of hard work and excellent teaching. It is fantastic to see so many students accessing university and gaining the qualifications they need for the future. I wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
