Welcome to OCA

Welcome to Ormiston Chadwick Academy or as we fondly call it, OCA. I am extremely proud and privileged to introduce myself as Principal of this dynamic, high achieving and forward-thinking school.

At OCA we pride ourselves on being an academy that makes the biggest difference to young people’s lives by laying the foundations to encourage a successful future. Everything we do, we do with our students and their curriculum at the heart of it.

Here at OCA, we set high expectations to ensure that every pupil excels across all aspects of academy life. Our intention is to ensure pupils make outstanding progress and that our bespoke curriculum removes any potential barriers to learning. We want our pupils to leave with the knowledge and skills that will not only create excellent life opportunities, but will also prepare them exceptionally well for life beyond the academy. We seek to achieve this through recognising and accepting that all our students are individuals; the caring, trusting and positive relationships are our core; our students feel safe and they are valued.

At OCA, we aim to develop inspirational, forward thinking young people who gain the skills, knowledge and qualifications to lead a happy and rewarding life. We want all of our students to feel part of our family and understand what it means to be a ‘true OCAer’. We do this through our core values.

You are welcome to visit us at any time.
