About us – Message from the Principal

Ormiston Rivers Academy is a unique 11-18 co-educational academy, working in close partnership with the Ormiston Trust family of academies.

Being smaller than other local secondary education providers means we are a true community academy. We are focussed on every student’s well-being, much like a close family. We want the best for our youngsters and will seek new and diverse ways of achieving this for each individual child.

We are proud to be part of the broader population of the Dengie and enjoy the opportunities this affords our youngsters for extended activities and “real” citizenship; working closely with the local community.  It is a privilege to be part of an academy that is so closely linked with its surrounding community.

Young people often say that they learn better when they are having fun.  Enjoyment and aspiration are at the heart of Ormiston Rivers Academy’s philosophy and we truly endeavour to ensure that the experience of learning with us is positive, and encourages a lifelong enthusiasm for learning in all our students.

We hope you find the information provided on the website both useful and informative. If you have any questions or would like to visit us at the Academy please contact main reception on 01621 782377 or e-mail info@ormistonriversacademy.co.uk
