School Description

Birmingham Ormiston Academy first admitted students in Year 12 to temporary accommodation in September 2011. It opened officially in September 2012 to students in Year 10. The academy now educates students from the ages of 14 to 19. The academy is sponsored by the Ormiston Trust and Birmingham City University. It specialises in creative, digital and performing arts. Students are selected according to their aptitude in these art forms. The academy is smaller than the average-sized secondary school. Most students are White British. The proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium, which is additional funding provided by the government for students known to be eligible for free school meals, for those looked after in public care, and for children of service families, is below average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is below the national average, as is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. No students are educated in alternative provision off site. Senior leaders do not enter students early for GCSEs and they have a well-thought-out strategy to support this view. There are, as yet, no public examination results to allow the academy’s performance to be measured against the floor standards, which set the minimum levels expected for students’ attainment and progress.
