Welcome to Ormiston South Parade Academy (OSPA)

‘Believe in yourself’

My name is Kate Steward and I am immensely proud to be the Principal of OSPA. OSPA is a proud member of the Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) family.

We cater for children from the ages of 2 to 11 in a vibrant and modern environment. Our teachers are exceptional; providing high-quality learning for every child, every day.  We are a very strong team and our results are testament to that.

We are fully committed to helping our children grow and develop the knowledge and skills that they will need to be successful in life. We take great pride in the broad and exciting curriculum we offer our children and the range of support they receive in order to thrive. As well as the core academic skills that are important for our children to learn, we also want everyone to be happy within school, feel safe and be confident to take on the challenges they will face as they grow older. Resilience, aspirations and the willingness and ability to take risks, believing in oneself and learning from mistakes are qualities that we believe are essential and we commit a lot of time and effort into helping our children to be the best versions of themselves.

We have a highly-dedicated and committed inclusion team who are in place to support children and families pastorally; there is very little they won’t do for the best for our children. All of our staff go the extra mile for the children and genuinely want the very best for them.

We also pride ourselves on our exciting enrichment programme of extra-curricular activities and various trips and residential visits which all contribute to building happy and confident children who have a love of learning.

Our families and the community that we serve are very important to us. We believe that a positive relationship between home and school is an essential partnership of support for our children.

I hope that you enjoy our website and reading about all of the amazing things that we do here at OSPA! Visits to the academy are warmly welcomed and can be arranged via the academy reception.

Mrs Kate Steward, Principal
