Year 11 Virtual Information Event

Thursday 8th October 2020 will also see the launch of our Year 11 Virtual Information Evening. You will be able to watch a range of videos that explain the services that we have to offer and provide advice for parents and students on many different subjects, including a range of study materials.


Despite an unprecedented exam season, thankfully, students at Ormiston Rivers Academy are still able to celebrate with a 95% pass rate overall, and an incredible 89 A*-B Grades.  The Academy’s headline results improved in terms of progress and performance across the board with many subjects 30-50% improved on last year.


Students will be moving on to a wide variety of leading and specialist universities to study a diverse range of degree courses, including the sciences, Politics, Law, English Literature, Psychology and Comedy!  There are also several students continuing their degree studies into nursing and policing; these are our future NHS and key worker heroes.  We are so very proud of them all.
