Welcome to Ormiston Park Academy

Welcome to OPA6, Ormiston Park Academy’s Sixth Form. I am delighted you are considering us for the next stage of your learning journey. Here, our vision is to provide all students with a personalised pathway that guides everyone to achieve their aspirations at the end of their studies. Students have full use of our dedicated OPA6 study area in the Academy as well as all teaching, learning and leisure facilities, and are fully supported by our teaching and pastoral staff. Our Sixth form provides an increasing range of academic and vocational courses to meet the needs of all students, together with educational, social, physical and enrichment opportunities. Whether you are decided on your specific study pathway or are keeping your options open, we have a team of staff that can assist you in making the right decision to help you achieve success. OPA6 continues its exciting partnership with South Essex College across all three of their campuses in Southend, Basildon and Thurrock. This partnership enables all students to select their main study at a SEC campus but return to OPA6 on their non-college day to use facilities and gain the support of staff. OPA6 encourages and supports all students to develop as independent, confident and responsible adults, prepared to start university, apprenticeships or their new careers at the end of their time with us. We look forward to seeing you at one of our open evenings and receiving your application form.

About us

A warm welcome to Ormiston Park Academy, a small but growing Academy serving the community of Aveley in Thurrock. We provide an education for students aged 11-19yrs and offer outstanding facilities for all who wish to use them.

I am delighted, and it is a privilege, to be leading the Academy at this particular time. With the transformation of our buildings and grounds nearly complete, the future is filled with excitement.

We have staff who are devoted to providing the best education possible, and students of  whom we are extremely proud, the mix  creates an Academy that is a pleasure to work and learn in.

The Academy offers a safe and secure environment in which to succeed and we passionately pursue with our students the highest possible achievements. Our vision is for students to build a self belief and confidence that affords them no boundaries, and to couple that with the respect and discipline required to be leaders of the future.

We are committed to a strong home-academy  partnership and actively support parent/carer engagement in our work. We believe the whole community can contribute to ensuring the outstanding progress of our students as they journey through Academy to University, the workplace and beyond.
