All OMA students, irrespective of their backgrounds, will be exceptional learners, so they are equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills, qualifications and mindset to contribute positively in society.
At OMA, we believe that students will aspire to excellence through literacy, with a specific focus on oracy at Key Stage 3. Students will learn to become masters of retrieval and experience a curriculum which develops students’ cultural capital.
At Ormiston Maritime Academy, the ‘Vision’ and ‘Mission’ are the overarching umbrella of our ASPIRE values.
We are incredibly proud of these values as they were developed by our wonderful students. Ormiston Maritime Academy students know what it takes to be successful in life! The OMA way: Every Student, Everywhere, Every Day.
