I am delighted to introduce myself as Principal of this vibrant, dynamic and ambitious 11-16 academy situated in the heart of our community. Over the last few years, I have seen our family grow from strength-to-strength and I am exceptionally proud of our progress towards becoming one of the best schools in Halton.  Our ethos of PRIDE emanates throughout the entire school.  

My talented and committed team of staff provides an outstanding education for our students, working above and beyond, each and every day.  My subject leaders are experts in their field, supported by exceptional professional development. 

I have a steadfast determination to improve levels of literacy and oracy; enabling our students to achieve the very best outcomes with the self-belief to fly. Our curriculum extends well beyond the classroom walls and we actively enrich our students’ experiences, enhancing their cultural learning through an outstanding offer of activities, travel and rewards. 

Being a smaller school with a PAN of 600, we know our students inside-out and always put them at the heart of every decision. We promise to nurture, support and challenge them every day; unlock their talents and show them that success is not only measured in academic outcomes but through their wider achievements and milestones. 

Being a Liverpool City Region Careers Hub and delivering an outstanding pupil leadership programme means our students leave us with the confidence and skills to pursue the career of their dreams.

Every parent and carer wants to know that the school their child attends is a safe place of progress, movement, and happiness.  I pledge that the most important of my endeavours is to make a deep and genuine difference in the lives of our students.  I would love for your child to join our family and grow into the young person they aspire to be.

I hope to see you soon!

Mrs Sally Jones, Principal

Sandymoor Ormiston Academy; where dreams are within reach
