Ormiston Endeavour students celebrate outstanding GCSE successes
Posted: 31 Aug 2016
Students at Ormiston Endeavour Academy were elated with an excellent set of GCSE results – with significant improvements achieved.
In the key headline measure, 55% achieved A* to C in English and maths – up 16 percentage points on last year’s “Basics” measure. This was underpinned by 65% of students achieving at least a C in English and 62% per cent doing so in maths.
There were numerous individual success stories, including:
• Jack Oxford, our top performing student, who achieved 5A*s, 4As and 1B in his GCSEs
• Jo’Moya Smithen, who achieved 2A*s, 5As in her GCSEs and a distinction in her Health and Social Care BTEC
• Melissa Duncan, who achieved 1A*, 6As and 1B in her GCSEs. The progress Melissa made since her Key Stage 2 tests at the end of primary school was also outstanding – achieving an average of one and a half grades higher than similar Key Stage 2 performing students
Principal Christine Woods said:
“We are immensely proud of our students for these results – they have worked incredibly hard and demonstrated what they can achieve. We are delighted that their hard work and talent, backed up by great teaching and support from parents, has translated into such a strong set of results. “This is testament to the ongoing improvements we are seeing at Ormiston Endeavour and we are determined to make further progress over the next 12 months.”
Professor Toby Salt, Chief Executive of Ormiston Academies Trust, said:
“It is our absolute priority to ensure that every student fulfils their potential, no matter what their background, and we are delighted to see a further rise in GCSE results at Ormiston Endeavour Academy.
“Students, staff and parents deserve great credit for these results which reflect their commitment and determination to succeed and we look forward to building on these achievements year after year.”
