Ormiston NEW Academy students collect their post 16 results

Posted on: 10th August 2021

Students and staff at NEWA are celebrating today after receiving their post 16 results, enabling them to secure places at their chosen universities, on coveted apprenticeships and selected jobs.

Despite it being another unusual academic year due to the pandemic, students at NEWA’s sixth form, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), have achieved some excellent results which reflect the hard work and commitment shown throughout their studies.

Principal, Mr Craig Cooling said: “We are delighted to see our students receiving their results today, all of which are hugely deserved after working hard. The pace and commitment that these students have shown during the pandemic is nothing short of exceptional, they have shown spirit, resilience and motivation throughout.”

We are very proud of the next steps that our post 16 students will be taking, including securing places at universities, on coveted apprenticeships and in their first jobs. These young people start the next stage of their lives now, they have been on a journey with us and I wish them well, and every success, on their continuing path.

I would like to thank all our students, their families, our staff and the wider school community for their ongoing support and we look forward to seeing our students go on to achieve brilliant things.”

This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government decided that young people’s grades would be determined by teachers, based on work students produced throughout their course. These grades were then moderated and assessed by external exam boards which awarded the final grades.
