Mrs Barbara King, The Principal
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.
