About Us

WELCOME TO ORMISTON SWB ACADEMY.

Our Vision

All SWB students will be respectful, responsible learners 
experiencing a first class education

Under new leadership at the Academy, with improving results in all areas, this is an exciting time for our Academy. We have an oversubscribed school with a diverse and enthusiastic student intake.

At Ormiston SWB Academy, we value manners, kindness and celebrate diversity 

We believe through nurture and hard work that every child has the potential to succeed and be the best that they can be. 

We want our young people to leave education feeling confident not only in knowledge, but also in personal skills and qualities 

Our students will be able to make informed choices in both their personal and work lives. 

Students will gain mental strength and be strong characters, which will enable them to lead secure successful futures, giving them a distinct advantage in life.

Mr R Hughes | Principal

Humanities Photography Competition for Year 7,8 and 9

Take a photograph of something or somewhere in your local community and in 100 words tell us how it connects us to geography, history or PRE and explain how this everyday photograph tells a significant story. For example, what does it reveal? Why should we remember it? If you’re up for the challenge, see if you can take a photograph that links to all three subjects.

One winner from each group will be selected. The best entries will all be sent off to be in with the chance of winning a £10 Amazon voucher!

Give your entry to a humanities teacher or email it to Miss Bytheway: lbytheway@oswba.co.uk
