Ormiston Academies Trust

Ormiston Academies Trust logoOrmiston Academies Trust (OAT) is a not for profit sponsor of primary and secondary academies.

In 2005, Ormiston Trust looked for ways to broaden its impact in new areas and made the decision to become an academy sponsor. This decision was driven by a commitment to helping young people to maximise their potential; both academic and personal.

The Trust sponsored its first academy, the Gateway Academy in 2006.  At the time it was rated as the 7th worst school in the country. Standards at the academy have steadily improved and Gateway has now developed its own multi-academy trust which includes a network of primary schools.

In order to manage this growing network of academies, the Trust established Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) in Birmingham to oversee the work in the new academies. Like the Ormiston Trust and Ormiston Families, OAT is a not for profit, charitable organisation. Ormiston Trust retains the responsibility for two academies in the Ormiston network, whilst OAT manages the remainder. OAT is a semi-autonomous related organisation which is almost entirely state-funded and receives an amount of funding from OT.
