Ormiston Latimer Academy is an alternative provision academy in The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBK&C). It is commissioned to provide education for pupils that are at risk of exclusion or are excluded from school with the aim to achieve reintegration back into school, further education or employment.

The academy is on an improvement journey and the staff are excited and motivated to keep developing, learning and moving the school forwards.

They see their relationships with teachers as a real strength of the school, along with the enrichment opportunities, and can also clearly articulate what they would like to see improve. They are honest and friendly and really want to do well.
