The Ockendon Academy is an ambitious, challenging and creative place to learn and work. Ofsted graded us as “good with outstanding features” recognising our improved and consistently high standards of behaviour, attendance and punctuality as well as academic success. Our students both achieve and enjoy their time at The Academy. We are committed and focused on providing the highest quality learning and working activities and experiences so that we can enjoy being the best that we can be today, tomorrow and in the future.
The Academy is extremely popular with the local community and in order to meet demand will be expanding every single year. The number of students on roll currently is in excess of 1,100 and predicted to grow to above 1,300 within the next few years.
In 2013 we opened a Sixth Form in a brand new £1.6 million building which enjoys state of the art facilities and combines academic excellence with work placed learning.
The Academy considers the training and development of all staff as vital to our future success. We offer full training and induction to all staff and bespoke continued professional development for staff at all stages of their career.
Should you wish to see the school first-hand, school visits are welcomed at any time by prior arrangement.
