Our students, teachers, support staff, 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 going 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.
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.
The new Ofsted framework expects very high standards and our judgement shows that we deliver a high-quality education day in day out.
