Curriculum Overview

Our core purpose is to provide a first-class education. Every child (regardless of starting point, disadvantage or SEND need) has the right to acquire knowledge and skills in every subject before they leave Ormiston SWB Academy.

We want to create consistency and alignment across the Academy so that every classroom can share in our collective knowledge of what makes for the best curriculum, the best teaching and valuable assessment.

Ormiston SWB Academy students are expected to demonstrate a vast array of characteristics that will prepare them for future success. 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. This is aimed at giving students the opportunity to have experiences, which deepen knowledge, embed skills and strengthen character. Through Years 7 to 13, students will study and take part in an enrichment programme including visits, courses, events and activities alongside their timetabled lessons.
