Welcome to Ormiston SWB Academy

Learning for Life, Securing Success
Welcome to Ormiston SWB, a mixed 11-16 Academy and post 16 Sixth Form, serving a truly multi-cultural community, whereby every pupil is respected and treated as an individual.

We take our responsibility towards parents and students very seriously and are committed to providing first class-education for every individual child in our care. In September 2012 we moved into our outstanding, brand new £25 million facilities which provide students with a world class learning environment to inspire and motivate them to work hard and achieve their potential.

Well, the sun came out for Prom night! Our wonderful Year 11 students arrived in style, with a variety of different transport options. They looked good enough for any red carpet!

The girls were beautiful and glamorous and the boys were stylish and dapper. The room and decor was beautiful and stunning and I think most appreciated our leavers poem. It actually brought a tear to Flynn's eye!

We had lots of dancing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We felt that it was only fair that students would vote for their Prom King & Queen. A ballot box was used and staff kindly counted up their votes. We interupted their dancing for a few silly awards and Archie was really impressed with his star gazer award!

Shacquel Hamilton was announced as Prom King and although we were thrilled we had to cut short his acceptance speech! The gorgeous Valerija Buzmakova won Prom Queen. We were thrilled for them both, as they have both had a tough year.

The dancing continued and their behaviour was impeccable. Although we were really tired we didn't want it to end. It was a fantastic night for a fantastic Year group and we will miss them terribly. You really have done us proud. - Mrs Dorsett
