Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT)

Our academy is a member of Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) – a not-for-profit, multi-academy Trust, which sponsors 40 primary and secondary academies across England, delivering high-quality education to 30,000 young people.

Each academy is led and run by the Principal and Senior Leaders and as OAT believes that every academy and community is unique, it does not take a one size fits all approach. It provides a balance of focused support and challenge, a breadth of opportunities, and it enables us to collaborate with academies across the network, to share best practice and to ensure we benefit from the wealth of expertise.

Everyone in the OAT family shares the same vision – to be wholly committed to young people, ensuring that they have access to the highest academic, social and practical skills required to achieve their full potential, whether going on to study at a leading university or entering the world of work. We are all determined to become part of the Trust that makes the biggest difference, both inside and outside the classroom.

The impact is clear – with more than three-quarters of the academies being rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted since joining the Trust. For many years, OAT has successfully raised academic standards, including in disadvantaged communities, and the Trust is committed to ensuring that all children and young people across the academies benefit from the high quality education being delivered across the network. OAT has been recognised as one of the top performing education providers in the country by government.

OAT’s strategic direction comes from its Board of Trustees, who have a wealth of experience in the education sector. The Trust is also guided by its founding body, Ormiston Trust, which is a national charity founded by the Murray family in 1969 to improve the life-chances of children and young people so they can fulfil their potential and lead happy and productive lives. The family takes an active role in OAT and every one of its academies.
