 I would like to welcome you warmly to the Ortu Federation.  Our family of schools exists to ensure that every child receives the best education and the widest available opportunities for achievement and social accomplishment possible, in preparation for life in the 21st Century.

Our children are our greatest treasure and all schools within the Trust work closely together to ensure that their entitlement to success is fulfilled every day, everywhere and in every way.

As a Trust, we believe that we have the capability to make a difference in your child’s life and are morally bound to work in partnership with you to do so.  We look forward to working with you to make that difference, beginning today.

The development of leadership skills is at the the heart of how we will raise aspirations and achievements for all.

Our Trust emerged in 2013 from the need to support a neighbouring school and has thrived on the benefits which partnership working brings. The schools in the Ortu Federation are united by:

  • a shared vision and shared objectives and values

  • a relentless focus on exceptional quality of learning and teaching

  • joint working in key areas as student leadership, staff professional development and pedagogy

  • developing skills, the raising of aspirations, and

  • parent and community empowerment


We are very proud of the achievements of the Ortu Federation. We know that this model works and is socially sustainable. We enjoy welcoming visitors to all our Academies. Please contact us if you would like more information. Thank you for your interest and we hope you find this website helpful.
