Ormiston NEW Academy

Excellence through Endeavour

Our sponsor

Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) is a not-for-profit academy trust, sponsoring primary and secondary academies since 2008.

OAT champions the excellent academic achievement and all-round well-being and development of the 26,000+ young people it serves. Their vision is for all young people to 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. Determined to become the Trust that makes the biggest difference, both inside and outside the classroom. OAT academies share the Ormiston Academies Trust ethos of ensuring every child reaches their full potential; being aspirational and committed to academic excellence and being supportive yet courageous in our approach. The principles that lead to OAT academies’ success are not complicated:

  • Courage – addressing the challenge where it’s not being addressed.
  • Aspiration – no ‘can’t’ or ‘won’t’. There’s no place for excuses when a child’s future is at stake.
  • Culture – insistence on the highest standards of performance and behaviour, without exception. That goes for teachers and students.
  • Great leadership and finding the best teachers.

Nick Hudson, Interim Chief Executive Officer

“OAT is part of Ormiston Trust, a national charity formed in 1969 to improve the life-chances of children and young people so they can fulfil their potential and lead happy and productive adult lives.

We are delighted to be welcoming Ormiston NEW Academy to our OAT family and look forward to continuing to build on the strong foundations at the academy. At OAT, we are committed to ensuring every student achieves their full potential, whatever their background, and we really look forward to supporting Ormiston NEW Academy going forward.”
