The New Academy
Thank you for your interest in Oldbury Academy, an establishment with whom all partners are proud to be associated. We offer you a warm welcome and a unique insight, too, into our philosophy, our policy and our procedures. We have high expectations of both our students, and our staff and, through their hard work and commitment, we have made enormous progress in recent years, securing some of our best ever examination results and improving year upon year. We are immensely proud of these achievements and recognise the expertise and tremendous effort of all involved. Nevertheless, there can be no complacency and no ceiling to where we might aim to be in the years to come. Our 'Outstanding' OFSTED report in 2011 will mean very little unless we continue to grow, and fulfil, our aspirations and ambitions. Our conversion to Academy status is a step in the right direction; it provides the springboard to help us achieve these goals. As head teacher, I urge all stakeholders, both current and future, to rise to this challenge and embrace those changes ahead that will allow us to move to these higher levels, by transforming the learning experience at Oldbury. Whatever your involvement with this very special place may I wish you all well as we move, together, on our journey.
