Able, Gifted and Talented

Our Misson

At Ormiston Victory Academy we are committed to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to make outstanding progress. The Victory Scholars programme at Ormiston Victory Academy aims to support the most able students in doing this. We provide opportunities for students to take part in a number of activities and trips that aim to inspire our most able students. We aim to personalise our Victory Scholars programme to fit the specific needs of our students and give them opportunities catered to their individual needs. We work with all of our students to make sure they have access to the challenging activities and tasks to develop and demonstrate their skills in all subject areas.

Victory Scholars

Every subject area is involved in the provision of activities, trips, challenges, and events for the Victory Scholars programme. All students are given a Victory Scholars form to track their accomplishments in a range of challenges ranging from volunteer work outside of school to sharing their passion for subjects with other students. Those who excel in a number of areas are rewarded with a Victory Scholars badge and the offer of rewards trips at the end of the year. Students are also encouraged to enter a range of national competitions in all fields included Maths, Science, and English.

We have strong links with the University of East Anglia and Cambridge University, leading to residentials, mentoring, campus tours, and lectures. At Ormiston Victory Academy we encourage students to consider university as an option, and support them fully in their applications, but we also recognise there are a broad range of possible paths and we do our best to make sure each student has high aspirations to get to exactly where they want to be.

In Lessons

Provision for the most able is a key focus across the entire school. Each lesson has at least one exceptionally challenging objective to make sure every student is stretched and given the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills. Targets are set high and we encourage students to develop independent ways of learning to reach them. Teachers strive to make the curriculum relevant to the real-world wherever possible and make lessons engaging for a wide range of abilities, including those at the very top.
To support a positive engagement with learning, there is a Victory Scholars Google Classroom that all Victory Scholars have access to, where staff post interesting news, activities, and links to things we have found in the subjects we are passionate about.
