Our academy is a member of Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) – a not-for-profit, multi-academy Trust, which sponsors 36 primary and secondary academies across England, delivering high-quality education to 27,000 young people.

Each academy is led and run by the principal and senior leaders and as OAT believes that every academy and community is unique, it does not take a one size fits all approach. It provides a balance of focused support and challenge, a breadth of opportunities, and it enables us to collaborate with academies across the network, to share best practice and to ensure we benefit from the wealth of expertise.

Everyone in the OAT family shares the same vision – to be wholly committed to young people, ensuring that they have access to the highest academic, social and practical skills required to achieve their full potential, whether going on to study at a leading university or entering the world of work. We are all determined to become part of the Trust that makes the biggest difference, both inside and outside the classroom.

The impact is clear – with more than three quarters of the academies being rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted since joining the Trust. For many years, OAT has successfully raised academic standards, including in disadvantaged communities, and the Trust is committed to ensuring that all children and young people across the academies benefit from the high-quality education being delivered across the network.

OAT has been recognised as one of the top performing education providers in the country by government, placing OAT as the fifth best in England for primary school performance, out of 153 multi-academy trusts.

OAT’s strategic direction comes from its Board of Trustees, who have a wealth of experience in the education sector. The Trust is also guided by its founding body, Ormiston Trust, which is a national charity founded by the Murray family in 1969 to improve the life-chances of children and young people so they can fulfil their potential and lead happy and productive lives. The family takes an active role in OAT and every one of its academies.

We are also excited to be working in partnership with South Essex College of Further and Higher Education. They share their expertise and resources with us, helping to widen opportunities for our students.

Ormiston Park Academy is impressive. The staff are inspirational in their approach and deliver courses that build aspiration and self-confidence in the students. Students are encouraged to develop as individuals, capable of critical thought and the ability to be independent learners in a resource rich environment.

As Ormiston Park’s further education partner we are impressed by the success of both staff and students and look forward to continuing our support of the academy.

Letter from the Principal re retirement

November 6th, 2019|

Dear Parent/Carer,

I firstly want to welcome you and your child back to the academy after what I hope has been a restful and enjoyable half term break.

I also wanted to write to you today to inform you that I have made the decision to retire at the end of the academic year, having proudly served as Principal of Ormiston Park Academy for many years.

I first joined the school – which was then Aveley Secondary School, before later becoming Belhus Chase Specialist Humanities College – as Deputy Headteacher in 2004. During my fifteen years here, it has been both a pleasure and a privilege to support the many children and young people who have come through our school doors.

It is with great sadness that I will be leaving the academy, but I am so proud of how far we have come and of all the great milestones and achievements that we have reached together. Building Ormiston Park Academy to be the positive, proud and prosperous learning environment it is today has been a huge team effort, and some of my greatest career highlights have been at our academy.

There are so many things I am proud of, including leading our successful transition to become Ormiston Park Academy and join the Ormiston Academies Trust family in 2009 – a move which continues to significantly benefit our students, staff and wider school community. Additionally, designing and officially opening our state-of-the-art new building in 2013 which has given our students the opportunity to learn and develop in an inspiring and high-quality learning environment. And finally, achieving our Good Ofsted rating in 2017, with inspectors praising the high expectations and culture that we have all created – giving our students the very best possible chance to succeed.

The positive and upward journey of the academy, however, would not have been possible without the invaluable support of the parent body, and the collective hard work of the students, senior leadership team, staff, Board of Governors and our sponsor, OAT. I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to you all, as Ormiston Park Academy would not be the school it is today without you all.

As the academy continues on its successful journey, we are launching a recruitment process to appoint a high calibre Principal whose vision and passion will match our high expectations for the academy and your children.

Once appointed, I will be working closely, alongside our Board and the Trust, to support the transition of the new Principal, who will be starting in the new 2020/21 academic year.

We will keep you updated on the recruitment process, and in the meantime, I would like to thank you once again for your continued support over the years. It has truly been a pleasure to be the Principal of the academy, working alongside such talented children and staff, and I will continue to follow Ormiston Park Academy journey closely in the years to come.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Huw Derrick

Principal
