At Ormiston Victory Academy we believe it is important for our students to gain experiences both inside and outside of the classroom to enhance their learning. We are committed to offering stimulating, engaging and relevant Educational Trips to meet the needs of all our students.
In an attempt to remove all cash and cheques from the academy we are asking all parents to only use our e-payment method for trip payments. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay. ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.
Your secure online account is activated using a unique activation code, provided to you by the academy. Making a payment is straight forward and ParentPay hold an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date. Please do not hesitate to contact our Student Services Manager on 01603 734160 or email@example.com if you require any assistance with making a payment on Parent Pay.
Upcoming Education Trips
Our students have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of external educational visits. A list of upcoming events can be found below.
The table below is updated regularly as members of staff continue to plan exciting trips for students throughout the academic year.
Should you have any queries regarding an individual trip, please do hesitate to contact the ‘Visit Leader’ via reception.
