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.

Our Values -C.O.R.E

Our values clearly signal to staff, students and parents the core values of Character, Organisation, Resilience and Excellence which ensure our Academy is a focused, happy and a safe place to learn and achieve. Our values are supported by our brand new C.O.R.E Futures Programme.
