Watch it here!

Year 6 Supporting Success Evening

In case you missed it, here’s the recording of our Year 6 Supporting Success Evening which took place on Tuesday 8 June.

Year 6 Parent Information Evening

…And here’s the recording of our Parent Information Evening for our September 2021 intake, designed to support you through your child’s transition to Ossett Academy.

On the evening the Q&A facility wasn’t available so we’ve developed some frequently asked questions which you can find here.

Admissions Form for New Starters

If your child has a confirmed place at Ossett Academy for September, please click below to provide your contact details and other key information.

Virtual Tour of our Academy

Watch our film below to discover some of the important places in our academy and get to know a little bit about what kind of things go on. Oh and keep one eye open for a VIP round these parts – Ossy, our academy mascot, who clearly likes being the centre of attention, popping up in every room!

‘Talking Heads’

To complement our virtual tour, we‘ve produced a series of ‘talking heads’ clips, to introduce our new intake to key staff and subjects, which you can find here.

We hope that by familiarising you with our staff, subjects and academy, it will help with any feelings of unease you may experience before September.

Transition Guide

Our Year 6 Transition Guide contains lots of essential information you will need to know in readiness for September.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
