Building & Facilities

The campus at Ormiston Six Villages Academy offers an exceptional range of specialist facilities. 

There is a strong emphasis on enabling students to use information and communication technology to enhance and extend their learning.   An isolated Wi-Fi network for open access to the internet across the campus was installed in 2013, allowing us to embrace the growing move in education to facilitate the ‘Bring Your Own Device’ movement. The network is governed by the existing WSCC Internet Filtering Policy Agreement to ensure students’ safety whilst online is balanced by the flexibility needed for effective teaching and learning.   A school-wide intranet, internet and curriculum learning resource facility and an isolated Wi-Fi network for open access to the internet across the campus, enable students to access, store and utilise information.
