Our Academy

Brownhills is a thriving and vibrant learning community, where pupils are eager to succeed and teachers are passionate and committed. Visitors often comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere in the school and the buzz of activity that greets them. In the Academy elected pupils play a key role on the Academy Council, and our student leadership scheme encourages organisational skills and responsible behaviour.

Brownhills is a Healthy Eating Academy and all children are encouraged to follow a healthy and balanced diet. Brownhills is a community Academy in the broadest sense. Many other schools regularly use our 25 metre indoor pool, and local children can experience new activities via our popular after school clubs. Pupils are rightly proud of their fund raising activities for local and national charities.

In our Academy, pupils learn to express themselves with confidence because they feel supported and their concerns are respected and acted upon. Parents develop confidence in their child’s education through regular parents’ meetings and our open door policy. Teachers appreciate the mutual understanding that arises from this shared focus and commitment to success.

Brownhills Ormiston Academy is committed to safeguarding our students. Should you have a concern that a child is being harmed, is at risk of being harmed or you receive a disclosure regarding one of our students please contact Ruth Chaplin [email protected] (Designated Safeguarding Lead) on 01543 452886 immediately.

CEOP works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account.

We pride ourselves on being a smaller 11-16 secondary academy with big ambitions for our 715 students. We may be small but we have a big heart and this warmth and strong care permeates every aspect of the academy. Though we are modern in our facilities and resources, we hold traditional values and these underpin everything that we do in the academy:

  • Respect; for each other, for learning and for ourselves is a core value and we expect every student to show that respect in how they treat others and in the way they behave in lessons and around the
    building. This helps us to uphold a harmonious community within and beyond the academy.
  • Ready; Being ready for learning in terms of attendance, punctuality, organisation, attitude and work ethic is a core value which underpins the drive for academic achievement that we have for every
    child. Time at the academy is precious and we need to make the most of every learning opportunity.
  • Safety; Being safe is our third core value and we want every individual to feel safe, happy and valued in
    the academy. We expect students to keep themselves safe and to avoid behaviour that affects the safety of others.
