Dare to Shine at our Academy

Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy was the first academy in Runcorn, for students aged 11–18.

Our specialisms of English and Applied Learning permeate the curriculum and contribute to the vibrancy of the Academy. We aim to provide an innovative learning environment that excites, stimulates and challenges students within a secure and caring community.

Each student is allocated to a House, which is a small pastoral unit from Year 7 to sixth form. The House system gives students opportunities to take positions of leadership and responsibility.

Welcome to the exciting future of Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy.
