Welcome to our Academy

Executive Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Ormiston Six Villages Academy.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Six Villages as an academy. Put simply we aim to give the “best deal” to our students during their time at our school. We aim to achieve the best for and the best from the students during their time with us in all that they do.

We have a strong team who are leading the next stages of developments in the academy and this includes Mr O’Neill, Principal and Mr John, Vice Principal. 

Between us all we are fully committed to supporting every student at Six Villages to fulfil their potential in the classroom and beyond.

We will look forward to welcoming you to Six Villages in the near future.

Our Communities

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.
