Ormiston go to Stratford as part of aspiration journey

ORMISTON Park Academy have been working with the Student Engagement Trust on raising students’ aspirations and engagement in academy life.

They have developed a number of projects which includes the establishment of a student group, called ‘Students For Solutions’ who aim to improve the involvement of students in the learning process and act as the voice of all students as well as role models for their peers.

They were asked to present a key note speech at the Ormiston Academies Trust Annual conference which was held in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

They took five representatives from the ‘Students For Solutions’ Team who were interviewed on stage by the chief executive of the Student Engagement Trust in front of the OAT audience.

Students told how much of an impact their work has had across the Academy as well as on them as individuals. They were interviewed after the speech by a number of people as well as holding conversation with Professor Toby Salt, Chief Executive of Ormiston Academies Trust.

Amy Manning, a Geography teacher who accompanied the students said, “it was a successful day and the students made a real impression on all those who heard them speak.”
