Ormiston Park celebrates OPA6 successes
The Academy is proud of the hard work and results of our Sixth Formers. This year saw a cohort of students completing Level 3 Vocational courses and Level 3 Academic courses across the Ormiston Park site and in collaboration with South Essex College. OPA6 has seen the number of students going to university increase, with some students gaining entry to their first choice institution.
There have been more A Level entries than ever before and more students achieving higher grades. Similarly, vocational outcomes were our best yet, with more students than ever achieving Distinction* grades. OPA6 achieved a 96% overall pass rate and a 51% pass rate at A*-B.
that was double the size of previous years and achieving a 100% success rate. Students studied a widening range of courses from Multimedia and Engineering through to Business Studies and Applied Science, and again benefited from our innovative collaboration with South Essex College.
One individual success story was Abbie Smart, 19, who battled through cerebral palsy for three years to achieve her Child Development qualification, equivalent to three A levels and secured her place at university.
We would like to wish all students the best as they leave us and go on to employment or University.
