Ormiston Academies Trust

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

Ormiston Trust sponsored its first academy in 2006; the Gateway Academy in Thurrock.

At the time it was one of the most challenging schools in the country. After steadily rising results, the academy was rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted in 2011.

Ormiston Academies Trust was created in 2009 to run the Ormiston academies and OAT now has a family of academies across England.

OAT works with local communities and with schools all over the country to give young people access to an excellent education. Our vision is for all young people to have the highest academic, social and practical skills to allow them to lead a fulfilling life. We are determined to become the Trust that makes the biggest difference.
