Proposed Name Change Consultation Update

Earlier this month we held a public consultation on the proposal to change the name of Hamilton Academy to Orchard Mead Academy. The consultation closed on Friday 29th March 2019.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to respond. Trust leaders carefully considered the comments and suggestions received during the consultation and have agreed that Hamilton Academy change its name to Orchard Mead Academy from 28th August 2019.

The change of name for Hamilton Academy will explicitly reflect the School’s link with The Mead family of schools, celebrating our long established track record of school improvement and raising standards.

We would like to take this opportunity to assure you that the change of name will not affect the way in which the School is run. We will remain committed to working together to make a positive difference and continue to improve the life chances of our children and young people through high aspirations and challenge.

Should you have any questions about the name change, please do not hesitate to contact Charlotte Johnston, Executive Assistant, by email [email protected]
