In a letter to OAT Chief Executive Professor Toby Salt, Nick Gibb congratulated the Trust on its recent achievements, saying it was a reflection of 'the hard work and commitment' of students and 'the dedication and expertise of all staff.'

This recognises the important role the trust plays in education provision across the country and its commitment to ensuring every OAT student realises their full potential, regardless of their background.

This year’s GCSE and A Level results marked another excellent year for OAT students, with attainment rising across the Trust.

There were inspirational stories in each of OAT’s academies, including double digit rises in attainment in priority areas, best ever results at a number of schools and widespread evidence that OAT is bucking the trend by narrowing the gap between genders and for disadvantaged students.

In addition, this year saw more students than ever before are going on to study for A Levels, winning places at top universities and securing fantastic apprenticeship opportunities.

Professor Toby Salt  said: "I was delighted to receive this letter from the Minister. At all Ormiston academies we have a relentless focus on ensuring students have the opportunity to enjoy a top quality education, regardless of background, and we are proud that our hard work has been recognised."

“Students, staff and parents deserve great credit for their commitment and determination to succeed and we look forward to building on these achievements next year."
