Principal Dave SmithThank you for your interest in Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy. We are totally committed to giving every student the opportunity to succeed irrespective of their starting points. Raising aspiration and ensuring high standards of effort and commitment will allow each and every one of our students to be valuable and active members of their community.

Our six watch words are: Contribute, Respect, Enjoy, Achieve, Trust and Explore. This ‘CREATE’ message is fostered throughout the ethos of the Academy and especially in the specialist Arts area which continues to see exceptional work. Our inclusive environment provides the perfect atmosphere for students to develop and fulfil their potential.

As we embark on the new academic year we have a great deal to celebrate. A greater number of local parents chose to send their Year 7 child to us, we had some superb individual examination results for students reaching the end of Year 11 and 13 and the building and renovation project is well under way. As the King George campus celebrates its 100th year, the site is being revamped to cater for current educational practice. It is our aim to provide enjoyable and engaging lessons underpinned by high standards of dress and attitude to develop young people to their full potential. We foster an ethos of mutual respect, a caring and supportive culture in order to help students achieve the highest results they can.

If you would like to visit the school, please contact the school and we look forward to welcoming you here.
