Welcome to our Academy

Monday 27th June 2016

Monday 27th June 2016 is an INSET day.

There is, however, one exam taking place that day - GCSE Product Design - at 9.00am. If your child is taking this exam, then they should come to school as normal that morning, sign in at reception and then make their way to the exam room.

Principal's Welcome

As the new Principal of Ormiston Six Villages Academy I am delighted to have joined a dynamic, highly committed team of staff who are very proud to work at Six Villages. Students have been very welcoming and have already proved themselves to be ready for any academic and personal challenges ahead.

I intend to continue the drive for constant improvement as set out by Mr Carter and Mr O’Neill in the Autumn term. The academic, social and personal development of each student is my priority and I have the highest of expectations of uniform, conduct and engagement with learning. Every student we support at Six Villages deserves the very best experience and I am privileged to work with parents and carers, in partnership through a new Parents’ Forum to explore the building of our new vision, to ensure this is the case.

Prospective students and their families are welcome to make an appointment to tour the Academy at a mutually convenient time by contacting Mrs Canadas on 01243 546802 or by email

Ms Umbar Sharif, Principal

Keeping our students safe

Six Villages is committed to providing a safe and secure setting for children, staff and visitors which promotes an environment where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. The welfare and interests of children are paramount in all circumstances.

More information can be found in our Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy on our Policies page and on our e-safety pages for students and parents/carers.

On entering the Academy, students become a member of one of three Communities. Belonging to a Community creates a cohesive and friendly environment that helps students feel a sense of belonging. The Vertical Tutoring structure encourages leadership and mentoring opportunities for students, and allows them to get to know and work with students from all years.
