Here at Ormiston Park, our vision of ‘believe and achieve’ extends beyond academic achievement to encompass the holistic social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of each and every student.

“Our aim is to inspire young people to develop their skills, talents and character through a wide range of activities, to use their curiosity and creativity to find new ways of achieving their potential and to have the confidence, drive and resilience to follow their dreams.”  Ormiston Academies Trust – Enrichment Charter

We strive to ensure, that during their time at Ormiston Park, every student has the opportunity to:

  1. Experience the arts and culture
  2. Experience live sporting events
  3. Visit British places/regions outside their local community
  4. Experience cultures and countries outside the UK
  5. Be a good neighbour in their local community
  6. Gain valuable experience of work
  7. Develop their character
  8. Make a positive contribution to society
  9. Develop lifelong interests and skills for life
  10. Learn outside the classroom

Students are encouraged to explore new experiences and find new talents and interests. We firmly believe enrichment activities are fundamental in helping students to be happy and confident at school therefore impacting positively on their progress and performance.

Our enrichment programme incorporates break time clubs, after school clubs, day and residential trips and visits to the Academy from external organizations and guest speakers.

Educational Visits and Trips

Providing students with opportunities to engage in new experiences and extend their learning beyond the classroom is something the Academy values highly. Curriculum areas provide educational visits and trips across the academic year. Visits and trips are, at times, provided free of charge by the Academy. However, depending on the nature of the trip, we will sometimes have to ask for parents/guardians to contribute towards the cost. We do not wish to exclude any student from any experience due to financial circumstances so we urge parents/careers to contact their child’s Head of Year to discuss any support we may be able to offer in these circumstances. You will receive information regarding planned visits and trips throughout the year.

Dear Parents/Carers

July 19th, 2019|

I have today issued all students with a letter to inform you of some key dates and information as we break for the summer and in preparation for the next academic year.

I would like to thank all the parents and carers who attended the behaviour information meetings at which I, with my colleague Mr Rashid, responded to your questions and queries. I would also like to thank those parents/ carers who have taken the time to contact the Academy with their support for the changes we outlined and with constructive suggestions. The new policy has already seen a significant improvement in the behaviour of our students and has enabled our teachers to focus more effectively on delivering outstanding lessons to all our students.

I would also like to thank you for your continued support in ensuring our uniform standards are maintained at the highest level. Please ensure that on return winter coats are compliant with our policy and that all students have a suitable school bag and a full set of the required equipment.

May I ask please that the actions required regarding informing the Academy of emergency contact details for all students are completed as soon as is possible (Information and instructions are given on the reverse of my letter).

The full letter is posted on the Academy website in the Letters Home section. Further information will be posted as and when required.

From all at the Academy we wish everyone a safe, enjoyable and refreshing summer break.
