BRAINY students have proved they are top of the class as a Westergate school celebrated its best ever GCSE results.
Students from the Ormiston Six Villages Academy were celebrating this morning (Thursday, August 21) after the school announced its best ever GCSE results despite the largest set of changes to exam criteria for several years.
Principal Steve Nelmes said: “These results indicate that our academy is well on the way to good and outstanding academic achievement.
“The students are to be congratulated on their hard work and dedication and for having achieved excellence for all.
“I am expecting even better results in the future as our relationship with the OAT Academy family deepens.”
Along with Mr Nelmes, the academy’s governors and staff are delighted that the hard work of the class of 2014 has been recognised.
Mai Betsworth achieved 11 GCSE passes ten of which were of the highest A* and A grades.
Jon Shepherd was also awarded 11 GCSE passes eight of which were at A and A* level.
Eleven passes also went to Kayleigh Puttock again eight of these were As or A*s.
Josh Coyne had 11 passes overall seven of them were either A or A*s and Charley Morgan also achieved 11 passes which included five A and A* grades.
Professor Toby Salt, the CEO of Ormiston Academies Trust said: “We are delighted with this excellent set of results, particularly in the first year of academy status.
“My congratulations go to the principle, his staff and the students.
“They have all worked hard to achieve so well. Results like these ensure students have a strong foundation for their futures.”
