Values & Ethos

The SWECET vision is to educate, empower and inspire generations of children through a network of outstanding schools that are recognised at a local, regional and national level as being the absolute benchmark in excellent teaching and learning. Our schools will be recognised as the most forward thinking and innovative organisations within the communities that they serve, and all children will leave our care as well rounded individuals who have achieved high levels of academic success and are well prepared for life in modern Britain.

Orsett Heath Academy is characterised by its passionate and unrelenting drive to ensure that every one of its students makes extraordinary progress, achieves exceptional standards and realises his or her huge potential. This takes place within an academy where best practice is commonplace, which prides itself at being at the cutting edge of innovation and next practice. It also have a strong culture of performance through sport and the arts that is enhanced by its unique proposed location.
