Welcome to Ormiston Denes Academy, the most historic school in Lowestoft and the first choice Academy for the majority of families in the local area. In line with our Grammar School heritage we offer a rigorous, traditional curriculum; supplemented by a broad choice from creative and performing arts, technology, and sport which is personalised to the ability of individual students.

Our ethos is simple:

Every young person has the potential to achieve the highest grades in English, mathematics and indeed all subjects that they take. By highest grades we mean a minimum of what is now a Grade C, but for a substantial proportion of our students this target will be an A. Our mantra of ‘every student every subject’ means that whilst English and mathematics are considered vital, we expect excellence in all curriculum areas, and set the highest standards for every individual student, regardless of their year group and whether they are aiming for a C or an A*.
