A Word

From Our Principal

” We are delighted that you have chosen to send your child to Ocker Hill Academy. This is one of the most important decisions that you will make on behalf of your child.

Ocker Hill Academy enjoys an enviable reputation within the Local Authority for Academic achievement. I have been Headteacher and Principal for 18 years at the academy and have seen a great many changes to education during that time. The one thing that has remained the same is the excitement, the inquisitiveness and kindness that the children bring to the academy. They are the purpose, the reason why we work hard as an academy community to try and get the best we can out of each individual child; so that they can go on to the next stage of their educational journey with the knowledge and skills that will help them succeed and have fulfilled futures.

The Governors, Principal and all staff are dedicated to providing the children at this academy with a high quality of education delivered in a happy, caring environment to ensure this happens.

We are a fully inclusive school firmly embedded within the local community that combines a successful track record for academic success with developing the children’s individual personalities.

We all look forward to meeting you and hope that you will have a long and happy relationship with Ocker Hill Academy. “

– Mr A Hollyhead
