Stakeholder views

"I didn't know what to expect when I first stepped into Six Villages but I have never regretted my decision to come here. It's a small school on a delightful site which is well laid out and has excellent facilities. The school has a real community feel where we are all in it together and we have purpose. I feel looked after and valued as a member of staff and was given development opportunities straight away. It's a great place to work.”

Michael Newman, Head of MFL

“We are student-centred, without compromising our high expectations of conduct and academic endeavour.” 

Nicola Gavin, Raising Standards Leader/Director of Learning Year 11

“Since our daughter joined Ormiston Six Villages Academy nearly 3 years ago both my husband and I have seen her grow even further into the accomplished and dedicated student she is today. Without doubt the Academy has played a significant role in her achievements, she has found new interests and a continued passion for her chosen subjects.  We were delighted to see that the Academy was rewarded for the hard work they continue to put in and the significant results they achieve by Ofsted. The support, enthusiasm and dedication from the Principal and all her staff is heartfelt and genuine; we consider ourselves very privileged to support what will surely soon be an outstanding Academy.” 

Mrs Jane Somner, Parent

“When choosing a secondary school I decided that my primary objectives were for my boys to be happy and cared for, that they were known to the staff as a person, not just a number or a statistic and that they would be nurtured and educated as a whole person and allowed to explore their creativity as well as their academic potential. Although my boys are very different, all of their needs, interests and personalities have been nurtured at Six Villages.  They have enjoyed academic successes because of the aspiration, inspiration and high expectations afforded to them by a team of dedicated and hard working staff.” 

Mrs R Dack, Parent

“Many parents recognise and value the changes leaders have brought about and the effect this is having on improving outcomes for their children. As one parent said, ‘I feel that we as parents are very much included as part of the school.’”

Ofsted, September 2017
