ORMISTON Bolingbroke Academy (OBA) in Runcorn says its sixth form is going from strength to strength after its A-Level results today.

More than 50 students have secured places at university this year. 

Student Danielle Stoba, who is off to the University of Leeds to study English literature and sociology, was delighted with her A*AA grades.  Joining her at the same university will be Stephanie Bowers who achieved A*A*AB to win her a place to study English and Theatre Studies. 

Believing it is never too late to learn is parent Christine McLean, aged 51, who has spent the last two years studying A Levels at OBA.  She is now going to Liverpool Hope University to study English language and literature, which has always been her dream.

Vice principal and head of sixth form Joan Mooney, said: “Our A-level students worked so hard to achieve such brilliant grades this year and we wish them all the success that they deserve at university or in employment. The tremendous efforts of the students and staff along with the support of parents and carers really paid off.”
