Ormiston South Parade Academy (OSPA) has been ranked in the top 5 per cent of schools in the country for attainment and in the top three schools in North East Lincolnshire for its results.
Overall, the Grimsby academy saw an impressive 88% of pupils achieve at least the expected standard in reading, writing and maths – significantly above the national and regional average of 65% – representing a four-percentage point increase on the academy’s 2018 results.
These strong results have led the academy to be ranked in the top 5% of schools in the country for attainment and in the top three schools in North East Lincolnshire for its results.
In reading, an outstanding 93% of pupils achieved the expected standard, with 92% doing so in maths and 90% in writing.
The progress pupils made in each individual subject was similarly strong, achieving a progress score of 5.3 in reading and 3.2 in maths – scores deemed by the Government as “well above the national average” and reflective of the value OSPA adds to its pupils.
Following in the positive trends of previous years, disadvantaged pupils (those from low income backgrounds who are eligible for free school meals) at the academy also performed particularly highly in the SATs results, with 78% achieving at least the expected standard in reading, writing and maths.
Jane Nolan, Director of Primary and SEND for Ormiston Academies Trust, said:“We are truly delighted to have achieved another excellent set of results this year at OSPA.
“They are testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff, pupils and their supportive families, and we are extremely proud of these achievements.
“At OSPA, we are committed to ensuring every child is given the support and opportunities they need to thrive and make the best possible progress, so we are thrilled that we have been able to achieve this for the children we’re so proud to serve.”
