Year 11s at Ormiston Six Villages Academy celebrated their GCSE results this morning, with many looking forward to moving onto a variety of post-16 pathways in a range of subjects.

Rather than traditional exams, this year’s grades were decided by teacher assessed grades and pupils were evaluated on a combination of coursework, mock exams and classroom evidence.

Paul Slaughter, principal of the academy said: “I wish to pay tribute to the extraordinary resilience, dedication and effort of our students. I could not be more impressed with the results of the Class of 2021 and the aspirations they have developed during their time at Six Villages. They richly deserve their successes today. “I am also indebted to my staff for their extraordinary commitment and tireless hard work for the good of the students.
