At Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy, our aim is to create a learning community where learning for all is fun, to develop a culture and environment of challenge, where achievement, at all levels, is valued and celebrated. We believe in creating a safe, happy and healthy environment where children can feel positive about themselves and the school. Everyone is encouraged to value and respect one another and the environment. Through our broad, balanced and creative curriculum we ensure high standards of teaching and learning that enable all pupils to reach their full potential.
Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy is a community school for children in the 7-11 age range. We have an admission limit of 90 and a total of 360 children on roll. The academy is part of Ormiston Academies Trust, a multi-academy trust with a family of academies across the whole of England. Children normally move to Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy from Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy in the September after their seventh birthday.
We are committed to providing teaching and learning experiences that are enjoyable, challenging and relevant to the needs of each individual.
Pupils have opportunities to learn independently and to develop their own creative ideas, and celebrating success is essential to our school family. Indeed, we seek to recognise and celebrate all successes (both inside and outside of school).
You can find further details about the academy on the DfE website, here.
