We commit to our students every step of the way, we educate for life and love to watch our students grow and develop. As students leave us and younger ones join, our family grows too and former students are always part of our family and remain at the heart of our community. 

If you are a former student of Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy we would love you to share your experience. We believe that your connection with us shouldn’t end when you move on and we always look forward to reconnecting with our former students. It is so helpful for our current students to hear your stories; this can raise the expectations and ambitions of our students by opening their eyes to the enriching career paths that could lie ahead for them. 

If you studied at our academy and would like to share your success story with us, we would love to hear from you, please contact us by selecting Alumni from the pulldown menu.
