Academy Information

Ormiston Chadwick Academy is named after the Nobel prize winner and physicist Sir James Chadwick. We first opened our doors to students on the 1st September 2014.

Our mission is simple; to ensure that every one of our students leaves us equipped with the necessary skills, qualifications and mindset to take the next steps in leading a deeply rewarding life.

Our Academy has a calm, supportive environment where students work hard. We are strong on discipline and have high expectations for the whole school community. Good manners, courtesy and appropriateness of dress are demanded. We expect all students to conduct themselves with dignity and show consideration both in and out of school.

Great relationships are the foundations of outstanding teaching and learning. At Ormiston Chadwick we only appoint highly qualified staff who love their work and are prepared to go ‘the extra mile’ for our students.

All staff at Ormiston Chadwick Academy have the highest expectations for every child. We want our students to leave us with a strong desire to continue to further their education, to continue active citizenship and fulfil their own ambitions. To this end we will set our students challenging targets, coupled with expert guidance and advice for a career path which will continue to challenge and motivate them. Our students are all allocated an academic mentor from the first year who will meet regularly with them to consider their aptitudes, strengths and where their talents may take them. We will help them research local and national universities and support them in gaining the necessary qualifications to ensure their destination of choice.

Your child will be happy at the Academy and make lasting friendships. We will foster key values of fairness, integrity, self-discipline and respect for others and their environment. We expect all students to progress to sixth form and the majority to aim for a place at University.

You are welcome to visit us at any time.
