Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to the Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy website. I am delighted to have become Principal here in February 2013, and to have joined the Academy at this exciting stage of its development. OSCA is certainly an Academy on the up, and 2013 promises to be an outstanding year!
At OSCA, our mission is simple. We believe that education is about opening doors for our students, and keeping them open. By nurturing young minds, by instilling respect for oneself and for others, and by building confidence, we can empower our students so that they are able to make informed choices. Once entrusted with the responsibility of improving the life chances our young people, we will ensure we deliver the highest possible standards of education they so richly deserve.
We have a wonderful team of staff here, all committed to ensuring continuous improvement in the quality of education the Academy provides. They also offer a vast array of enrichment activities, so that our students also have fun and enjoy learning on their journey towards success. The class of 2013 are well on their way to a record set of exam results once again this year. We are part way through a highly successful recruitment drive to ensure we bring in even more staff of the highest calibre for September, to ensure the Academy continues to go from strength to strength. So, the future’s bright!
Our students are a fantastic group of young people, who tell us that feel happy, safe and well cared for here. They really appreciate the opportunities on offer, and our Student Voice initiatives are second to none.
And finally, a major refurb and rebuilding programme starts this summer, and will roll out in planned phases. This will ensure that by 2015 our Academy will be a centre of excellence and innovation for our students, staff and the whole of the local community.
We hope you find our website useful, and look forward to welcoming you to our Academy.
