The intention of the Lifestyle Faculty is for all students to be able to develop a range of key skills, becoming effective team workers, competent communicators and cooperative individuals. Upon leaving Ormiston Endeavour Academy they should have the confidence and knowledge to lead a healthy, active lifestyle and be the best that they can be, regardless of ability. We want students to be prepared for adult life in an ever changing society, who can show resilience to any situation they may face in the future. We want them to reflect upon their time at Ormiston Endeavour Academy with pride and fondness, having enjoyed and experienced a range of subjects, activities and sports from the Lifestyle Department.

Our programme includes Relationships and Sex Education for which a parents guide can be found here.
