Our students, teachers, parents and governors, form one big OSSMA family who work together to ensure that achievement and enrichment are the central aspects of our daily life together. We are committed to go the extra mile to ensure the best for our young people and achieving our vision that:
“All OSSMA students will be exceptional learners, experiencing a world class education”.
We aim to provide the best experiences to our students, whether through academic work, competing in sport, participating in drama or by seeing the world. This helps them to shape their course as they move from school through to university and then on into their adult lives.
Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy is a Good school with Outstanding Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare, as judged by our recent Ofsted and we have been designated as a National Support School and our Principal, Mark Stanyer, as a National Leader of Education.
As a National Leader of Education, the Principal is able to conduct Pupil Premium reviews and as a National Support School, we are able to offer support for the development of senior and middle leadership and also teaching and learning.
Should any school or academy wish to utilise these offers, please contact Mrs Emma Smith, PA to the Principal.
We are proud of how far OSSMA has advanced since becoming an Ormiston academy in 2010 and we will continue to improve the opportunities for our young people that will equip them for modern life, and to have no ceiling on their aspirations.
Mark Stanyer, Principal
The new Ofsted framework expects very high standards and our judgement shows that we deliver a high quality education day in day out.
