In the current educational climate it is all too easy for schools to become almost solely driven by attainment at all costs.
Ormiston NEW Academy believes that schools must focus firstly on ensuring that all students feel nurtured and cared for; once this is in place without exception – attainment will follow!
Ormiston NEW Academy is blessed with a family of truly dedicated and inspiring staff and fabulously dynamic, motivated and willing students.
Students are entitled to a first class education and staff will endeavour to ensure that all they do represents excellence for the students served.
The Academy has established a broad, balanced and creative curriculum to meetthe needs of students.
August 2016 saw record breaking results for the Academy; achieving a 15% increase on the previous year.
Ormiston NEW Academy understands that choosing a secondary school for both students and parents is a worrying time.
Ormiston NEW Academy prides itself on ensuring they support families in making an informed choice and offer a supportive transition package to those students making that big move from primary to secondary school.
The Academy prides itself on its caring and nurturing ethos; central to this is the Academy’s successful house system and its family values. Students’ positive behaviour derives from the Academy promoting self-worth, mutual respect, confidence and resilience.
The Academy places a high importance on its pastoral system to ensure students are supported and encouraged to reach their potential socially, morally, spiritually and academically.
Mr Farr, Principal of the Academy since January 2016, said: “Ormiston NEW Academy is a vibrant, inspiring and exciting school where students feel happy, safe and secure.
“Staff and students work together with excellence for everyone, CARE and family at the heart of that relationship.
I am passionate about providing a nurturing, challenging and engaging learning environment for the staff and students a instil a positive ‘can do’ attitude.
“We want Ormiston NEW Academy to provide a rigorous, academic and challenging curriculum to help students from our community in a competitive world of work.”
Ormiston NEW Academy continues to form links and partnerships within the wider community; developing best practice and enhancing opportunities for both students and staff.
In September 2016 the Academy received national recognition at the PiXL awards evening as being one of the most improved schools nationally.
The Academy’s extra-curricular provision is growing, enabling students to experience opportunities above and beyond the provision during the normal Academy day.
Much is happening in terms of ‘change’ at the Academy.
From September 2017 the Academy became part of the Ormiston Academy Trust.
Being part of OAT will mean being part of a wider network of 30+ academies providing many benefits and bring many enrichment opportunities to the students
As the Academy embarks on a new academic year they will be raising the bar in terms of expectation, in particular the progress students make and their attitude to learning whilst being a productive member of the Academy Family.
