Admissions Arrangements

Ormiston Six Villages Academy has a structured programme of activities to introduce prospective parents and students to us, beginning with an informative ‘Open Evening’ held in late September or early October each year. Families are invited to tour the academy during the evening, with the opportunity to speak to department staff and current students as well as listen to an address by the Principal. You are also welcome to make an appointment to view the Academy at a mutually convenient time; our student ambassadors conduct guided tours so that prospective students and their parents can see learning in progress.

Our induction programme continues with a one-week Summer school to enthuse and excite new students before they join us in Year 7, as well as social and educational events throughout their first months with us to ensure they settle in well to their new learning environment.
