This is an experienced team who are here to help you with all aspects of secondary school life. I look forward to seeing all students develop and thrive this year and set the foundations for an excellent five years at Ormiston Chadwick Academy.

Advice and Guidance

This year is about learning new things as well as developing skills. You will be given regular updates on how you are progressing from your form tutor and subject teacher. Your head of year and form tutor are always there to offer support and guidance and answer all your questions. If parents / carers requirement any help or have any questions regarding students, then please do not hesitate to contact their form tutor or head of year


You will have a full whole school enrichment programme which will be individually tailored to each pupil. This is your opportunity to learn new skills and develop confidence in things you may not have tried before to ensure you make the most of your time at secondary school.

Attendance and Punctuality

Attendance is of the up most importance to all pupils. Students should aim for 97% or above and if possible 100%. Punctuality is also just as important. All students are expected to turn up to school and lessons on time, fully equipped and ready to learn.

Working Together

School life is not just about academic success. It is also about becoming a positive member of society who improves the lives of others around them. I want all our students to achieve success, to build their confidence and excel at everything they set their minds too. All students within the year group should work as part of a team and be there to help and support each other in everything we do together.

Targets for students in Year 8:

  • Achieve 97% or higher in terms of attendance.
  • Attend all enrichment and intervention sessions as required by your teachers.
  • Build positive and long–lasting relationships with both staff and pupils.
  • Have excellent punctuality.
  • Have excellent attitude to learning.

I have extremely high expectations and aim to ensure that every child in Year 8 feels happy and safe within school.

Good Luck Class of 2025!
