At Ormiston Herman Academy we believe in creating a safe, happy and healthy environment where children can feel positive about themselves and the academy. Everyone is encouraged to value and respect one another and the environment. Through our broad, balanced and creative curriculum we ensure high standards of teaching and learning that enable all pupils to reach their full potential. We are committed to providing teaching and learning experiences that are enjoyable, challenging and relevant to the needs of each individual.

Pupils have opportunities to learn independently and to develop their own creative ideas. Effective and meaningful assessment processes are an integral part of our work, enabling teachers, parents and pupils to identify progress and achievement and to diagnose the next steps needed to enhance future development. We recognise and celebrate all successes both inside and outside of the academy.

In January 2017 we were inspected by Ofsted. We were awarded a ‘Good’ rating with our Early Years department being rated as ‘Outstanding’. 

Ormiston Herman Academy has been shortlisted for the Early years setting of the year category in the 2020 Tes Schools Awards for the second year running!

We are delighted to announce that Ormiston Herman Academy students, Pritisha and Ashnetha, have both won first prize for entering the OAT National Summer Arts Project. Pritisha won the Primary Poetry category and Ashnetha won the Primary Short Story Category. Well done to you both!

We are pleased to share some recent drawings sent in to us from a parent. Tommy and Toby have drawn some fantastic pictures of all of the members of staff at the Academy. Well done to you both, and thank you for your brilliant artwork!
