After our huge leap in students' exam results this summer, we are now celebrating after we achieved two Gold Standard Awards at Ormiston Academies Trust’s annual conference.
The Academy won awards in the ‘Overall Improvement’ category and for ‘Progress in Humanities’.
These awards recognise the fantastic progress we are making, which this year saw the percentage of students achieving A*-C in English and Maths GCSE increase by a huge 17% taking the number of students achieving these top grades to 60%.
The second award was given in recognition for the progress achieved in Humanities. The department, led by Mr Marsh, saw students achieve particularly impressive results, including in history where 44.8% of all grades were in the top A*- A bracket.
Mr Marsh said, "Team work has been the key to our success at the OAT awards, alongside a cohort of students who chose to make the most of the opportunities given to them at Ormiston Six Villages Academy. We strive to ensure that no child is ever left behind and everybody is encouraged to aspire to do their very best. This has led to many students, especially those in Geography and History, achieving above and beyond expectations."
Ms Sharif said, “Staff and students have worked extremely hard to achieve such fantastic results and make brilliant progress this year and it is great to see this recognised and rewarded by OAT. I look forward to building on the progress already being made and ensuring that every student at OSVA is receiving top class education and reaching their full potential.”
