Kelly Moore has started the role as head Ormiston Meadows Academy, replacing former principal Jean Watt, who left the school last year,

Mrs Moore takes on the role as Principal having previously served as the academy’s Vice Principal for the last nine years. Alongside Mrs Watt, Mrs Moore was integral to the leadership team which achieved a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating in December 2018, with inspectors recognising the consistent improvements since its last inspection.

As an experienced school leader, Mrs Moore brings a wealth of knowledge and insight to her new role. Before joining Ormiston Meadows Academy in 2010, she held the role of Upper Key Stage 2 Leader at the local Dogsthorpe Junior School.
