Posted by Julian Owen | February 01, 2018 | School life

Ormiston Academies Trust has been ranked fifth best in the country by the Department for Education, among academy trusts which have had at least three primary schools with pupils who have taken the tests in Year 6 for a minimum of three years. 

OAT’s overall progress score across reading, writing and maths is 3.4. It recorded a particularly strong score in reading (its 4.3 score ranks it the second best in the country), and also scored highly in writing (3.2) and maths (2.8). Almost half of all OAT’s pupils are considered “disadvantaged” – well above the national average. 

OAT’s three primaries in the tables include Ormiston South Parade Academy (OSPA) in Grimsby, which is in the top 1% of primary schools in the country for the progress of its pupils in reading, writing and maths, and top primary school in its local authority, North East Lincolnshire. Out of the 239 schools in England with the same percentage of pupils taking free school meals, OSPA ranked 3rd highest for progress. 

“We are absolutely delighted with the excellent results achieved across our primary schools – they are a testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff, pupils and their families.'

The two other OAT primary schools are Ormiston Herman Academy in Great Yarmouth, which achieved record results in the latest primary school tests, and Ormiston Meadows Academy in Peterborough, whose overall score for reading, writing and maths increased by more than 29 percentage points from 2016. 

Jane Nolan, Executive Principal of OSPA and OAT's Primaries Development Coordinator, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the excellent results achieved across our primary schools – they are a testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff, pupils and their families, and we are extremely proud of these achievements.” 

Nick Hudson, Chief Executive of Ormiston Academies Trust, said: OAT’s primary offer is very strong, and is borne out by today’s rankings. We are delighted that the hard work and expertise of our primary school teachers and leaders are officially recognised as so outstanding.”
