What our Parents Say...

We love to share your kind words with the rest of the world, do share your thoughts with Mrs Julie Damps if you are happy to be included here!


"Please could you pass my thanks on to the staff at ORA for their commitment and hard work. We were very pleased with my daughters GCSE results and I know the teachers and support staff go over and above to help and support the students as much as they can. It is appreciated. I cannot fault the help and support she received." 

"I would like to thank the Science department in particular for going that extra mile by putting on regular after-school lessons and scheduling numerous revision classes during the holiday periods"

"Just a note to say thanks to you and the student group for organising the Diversity Week which sounds excellent and also for the great comms you have sent out for parents. It is so good to see our young people learning about equality and having the opportunity to celebrate diversity."

"Thank you to all your staff that have done so much for my daughter and inviting her to so many support sessions, you couldn't have done more for her in her 5 years with you, you are amazing"


"I wanted to congratulate you and your staff on a fantastic awards ceremony at the Academy this week.  There was a true sense of pride and community among the staff and pupils and tangible evidence of progress and success.  Congratulations to you all on your fantastic achievements. We are so lucky to have a fantastic school to send our children to"


"Hello.  I've just spent two hours walking around your school with my daughter, helped by two fantastic student ambassadors who were incredibly polite and patient.  All the teachers I spoke to were brilliant. Many thanks for helping my daughter make a fully informed decision"


"I just wanted to write to say how impressed I have been by the two recent shows I came to see at the Academy. To see young people with so much confidence, energy and talent was simply astonishing.  It still makes me smile with pleasure to think about it"


"Hi. I just wanted to send a quick note to say how pleased I am with my son's progress since he started in September. He has grown in confidence so much so I wanted to say a huge thank you to all his teachers and staff for giving him the encouragement and support he needed"


"I just wanted to say how brilliant the play was last night. It could easily give any West End show a run for its money. The students did amazingly well and you must be very proud of them"
