What the school says...
Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy will be the first Academy in Stoke-on-Trent to have a new building which will open in January 2013.
Our Vision: High quality teaching and learning, and raising standards
At Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy we go the extra mile for our young people. The academy is committed to developing as both a specialist Mathematics and Business and Enterprise Academy, helping young people master the key skills they need to master in preparation for adult life.
The Academy is to be constructed on the site of the existing Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy (OSSMA). The existing School will remain operational during the construction of the new Academy. The proposed wider site masterplan includes the co-location of a new special school - Kemball. Civic areas such as the new site entrance and parking will be shared by both new educational facilities. Once occupied the existing buildings are to be demolished and replaced with an extensive landscape scheme.
Pupil numbers are 1050, 11 to 16 and 150 post 16 giving a total occupancy of 1200.
Everyone involved with Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy has a great deal of pride in their new school. It has benefited greatly from the halo effect of Sir Stanley Matthewss legacy. His daughter, Jean Gough, attended the schools launch event, which was a huge success and was attended by the press. The academy is working closely with Stoke City football club. Academy students acted as guards of honour at a match between Stoke City and Blackpool, two clubs that Sir Stanley played for, in front of 26,000 people. The name has made a big impact outside of Stoke-on-Trent as the academy challenged an under-14s football team from a Blackpool school to compete against them for the Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Cup, creating publicity in Blackpool as well as Stoke-on-Trent.
Opened in September 2010 (replacing Blurton High School). ...Read more
