Students at Ormiston Horizon Academy in Chell have today received their GCSE results, enabling them to embark on the next chapter of their education.
Staff and students joined together to celebrate the many achievements at the end of what has been an unprecedented end to the academic year for all schools across the country, in light of COVID-19 and the cancellation of exams this summer.
Amongst some of the individual successes this year were:
Georgia Timbey who achieved eight grade 9s and two grades 8s
Morgan Nash who secured four grade 9s and five grade 8s and is now going on to study: Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at Newcastle College
Kieran Jones who attained a grade 7 in Mathematics and a grade 9 in Physical Education is a fantastic example for all students nationally as he spent the lockdown period working with the Salvation Army providing meals for vulnerable families. He has been recognised as an ‘unsung hero’ by our local MP
Charlotte Cooke is a testament to hard work and dedication throughout her five years at the academy and achieved amazing results across the board
Head Boy Ashely Moran and Head Girl Jade Smart, two outstanding ambassadors for the academy and the local community, achieved a range of impressive outcomes in all their subjects
Mr Fitzgibbon, Principal at Ormiston Horizon Academy, said:
“Students at Ormiston Horizon Academy should be rightly proud of their achievements today, which come at the end of such a challenging year for all. As a year group, they’ve remained upbeat and dedicated to their studies throughout a lot of uncertainty, and I know they will carry that positivity and resilience forward to the next stage of their education. We look forward to seeing what’s next in store for them!”
At Ormiston Horizon Academy both staff and students worked hard throughout the lockdown to keep spirits up and to ensure learning remained engaging. The results are a testament to all of their efforts, as the whole school looks forward to being reunited in September.”
