Ormiston Academies Trust

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

In 2005, Ormiston Trust looked for ways to broaden its impact in new areas and made the decision to become an academy sponsor. This decision was driven by a commitment to helping young people to maximise their potential; both academic and personal.

Ormiston Families

Ormiston Trust established the Ormiston Children and Families Trust in 1992 to manage an increasingly diverse range of services for children, young people and families. In 2014 Ormiston Children and Families Trust changed its name to Ormiston Families and established four programmes of work.

Their mission is to support families in the East of England to build resilience and make choices to improve the life chances of their children.

Gateway Learning Community Trust

Gateway Learning Academy was the first Ormiston Academy to be set up in 2006.

It was agreed with the DfES that instead of sponsorship being used towards a new building, it be spent on developing extended school projects. Therefore, Gateway Academy was launched, and was the first of its kind in the country.

Birmingham Ormiston Academy

Birmingham Ormiston Academy was founded in 2011 in a brand-new landmark building, located at the hub of the digital and creative industries in the West Midlands. The academy specialises in the development of the arts and creative industries.
