Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT)

Ormiston Academies Trust is a not-for-profit multi-academy sponsor with a family of primary and secondary academies across England. It believes that every academy and community is unique, so does not impose a ‘one size fits all’ approach to teaching and learning.

Ormiston Academies Trust is determined to be the Trust that makes the biggest difference.

OAT academies are encouraged to respond to the needs of their students and their community. OAT supports its academies to share good practice and is committed to giving their staff increased opportunities for professional development.

Ormiston provides a balance of focused support and challenge when required, but also a sufficient degree of autonomy to allow the academy to develop its unique offer.

All OAT academies share the same aspiration to make a difference to their local communities and provide students with the best start in life through a wide range of academic and enrichment opportunities. OAT aims to be the academy trust that makes the biggest difference to students and has created an enrichment charter to demonstrate its commitment.
