Welcome To The Ossett Academy Website
Our Charity Work
Ossett Academy endeavours to be as supportive as possible of local, national and international charities. Our biggest fund raising is for Warm Heart Malawi along with a small scale project in Addis Abba (Ethiopia). Many members of our school community are aware of fund raising locally for Wakefield Hospice and nationally for Meningitis charities. Although we will do all we can to be supportive of charity work, please appreciate that supporting every request made to the Academy will not be possible.
The Ossett Community contributes generously to charities. We have raised through Ossett Academy £30k in the last 3 school years.[Published: 29/01/2013]
GCSE Results 2014
Another year of outstanding GCSE examination results! Our Year 11 students have achieved amazing GCSE results again! Over 81% of our 2013/2014 Year 11 students achieved 5 A*-C grades including English and Mathematics; this is the best in Wakefield and, we believe, one of the best in Yorkshire. Almost a third of all grades were an A* or an A, this rises to 56% if B grades are included.
The staff and Governors wish to extend their warmest congratulations to all our students on their fantastic achievements; a result of their hard work and commitment.
Welcome to Ossett!
At Ossett, we are committed to ensuring that our students are supported, nurtured and valued as individuals: this is fairly unique in such a large organisation. Our overarching aim is to create happy students who really enjoy their learning.
We ensure that all students who attend the Academy have the opportunity to maximise their academic potential as well as their talents and abilities, in a vast range of activities outside the curriculum. Our students excel academically in comparison to other students nationally, both in terms of progress and attainment. Our educational provision is supported by excellent facilities for: learning; sport; music; drama and dance.
There is a very rich and diverse range of extra-curricular opportunities for our students which include a wide range of girls' and boys' sports - at which we compete and perform successfully at local and national level, excellent drama, music and dance showcases. We also provide an extensive range of educational visits, including international travel.
We have the highest expectations of all of our students and believe in firm but fair standards of discipline. We expect each student to demonstrate outstanding levels of courtesy and respect, adhere to the Academy's dress code and maintain a strong work ethic, throughout their time at Ossett.
We really do believe in creating a happy and caring environment here at Ossett Academy and Sixth Form College. I hope you enjoy browsing our website and I look forward to welcoming you to the Academy, should you choose to visit.
