Welcome to The Ockendon Academy

The Ockendon Academy is an ambitious, challenging and creative place to learn and work. Ofsted graded us as ‘good with outstanding features’ recognising our improved and consistently high standards of behaviour, attendance and punctuality as well as the academic success. Our students both achieve and enjoy their time at The Academy. We are committed and focussed on providing the highest quality learning and working activities and experiences so that we can be the best that we can be today, tomorrow and in the future.

I am really excited about the future of The Ockendon Academy and our ambition to have even better results and improved facilities. We are always looking forward, especially with our Studio School and Sixth Form as a school within an Academy. Please join us and share that ambition for the future.

A-Level Results 2015

We are extremely pleased with our first set of A-Level results which have exceeded our expectations; 42% of all grades awarded were at A* – B and 73% at A* – C. 98% of students passed three A-Levels.

Students will be progressing to a wide range of higher education and employment opportunities. Sean Gannon (AAB) will be reading International Business at the University of Roehampton and Hannah Mortimer (ABB) will be starting an apprenticeship in Banking and Finance.

We would like to congratulate staff and students for two years of hard work and dedication of which everyone can be proud. This set of results demonstrates that the Studio School has been a resounding success.

We would like to wish all of our students an enjoyable summer holiday. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 7th September at 8:30, in full school uniform.


SAM Learning 

We are very pleased to announce that the Academy has been awarded a gold certificate for being one of the top 50 SAM Learning schools in the country.

Catering arrangements from September 2015

With effect from 7th September 2015 all payments made by students for catering will be credited in full to the student’s Smart card upon receipt.  Payments can be made at any break time or before school at the catering tills and, as now, can be made by cash or cheque.

Students should therefore ensure that they bring their Smart card to the academy every day.  If your child does not have a card, they should advise a member of the catering team.

This new arrangement will assist considerably with the smooth running of the catering service for our students.
