Welcome to Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy

As the Principal of Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the school’s website. OBA is a happy, caring school where our students are at the centre of everything we do. I lead the school with my Senior Leadership Team.


We have very high expectations and aspirations for everybody in our school community and hold an ambition through our vision for OBA to be one of the country’s best schools. The school has enjoyed several years of success.
