Ormiston Six Villages Academy, is an exciting and supportive place to work.

Ofsted said “there is a strong sense of community in this friendly and inclusive school… pupils enjoy school life. Relationships between staff and pupils are based on mutual respect.” (Ofsted, November 2022).

There is great teamwork at all levels in the academy and we work together to provide outstanding opportunities for our students supported by cutting edge facilities. We deliver the best personalised professional development to support high quality teaching and learning as demonstrated through our values and vision.

Values and vision

At the academy, we provide students with a safe, positive environment to explore, learn, investigate and develop into confident young adults who are ready to enter an ever changing and competitive world. We aim to stretch, to stimulate and grow a love of life-long learning.

Every student at Six Villages will receive the very best educational experience; learning should be enjoyable, interesting and relevant to our modern technological age. Every student has the opportunity to excel, both in academic and personal development. Teaching is more than a classroom education; it is about developing responsible, valuable adults and a privilege to bestow. Staff work collaboratively to plan exciting, stretching and engaging lessons.

The size of the academy allows us to know each individual student and their family, and to build close working relationships. Parents and carers are encouraged to actively participate in academy life by attending parent voice at Parents’ Forum which will positively impact opportunities for students inside and outside the classroom. Students are encouraged to become active citizens who contribute to life at the academy.

Students are expected to take great pride in Six Villages, and share our high expectations of uniform, conduct and engagement with their education. We value each individual; it is essential that each person within the academy is tolerant, accepting and respectful.

We recognise excellence for all because there is excellence in all. Ofsted rated the academy good in all categories in November 2022, confirming the academy is consistently good.

There’s nothing more important than educating the next generation, and our teams across OAT are doing great things to make sure that the education we offer is the best that it can be. If you join us at OAT, whatever your role, you can be sure of a role with purpose and meaning.
