Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Ormiston Maritime Academy

Welcome to Ormiston Maritime Academy. I am incredibly proud to lead this academy as Principal as it is a delight to work with such dedicated staff and students.

As Principal, one my priorities is to ensure all students feel safe and happy here at the academy. Recent visits by external stakeholders such as parents, educators and Ofsted have said that safeguarding is effective, and bullying is rare. I am proud that the students here at Ormiston Maritime Academy have positive attitudes towards their learning.

Ormiston Maritime Academy is a place of learning which holds the young person at the centre of all that we do. Not only do we value academic excellence, we also understand how important it is to inspire, engage and challenge young people to be the best that they can be. The learning and achievement of our students is another priority; we unashamedly expect a great deal from them.

Our high expectations together with the high aspiration and ambitions you have for your child are all key ingredients in the vital partnership between the academy, the child and the home. It is this partnership which provides the cornerstone for your child to succeed. We will ensure that students have the support and guidance required to help them to become successful and responsible members of society.

We live in a rapidly changing and unpredictable world; therefore we must prepare students to live successfully in inter-dependent communities where knowledge, understanding and tolerance of other people and their cultures is vital. Students who join Ormiston Maritime Academy are building on a journey of learning and discovery which will last for their time at the Academy and continue throughout their lives.
