Cliff Park Ormiston Academy (formerly Cliff Park High School) is a coeducational secondary school with academy status, located in Gorleston in the English county of Norfolk. The school educates children aged 11 to 16.

Previously a foundation school, Cliff Park High School was put into special measures in 2012 following an unsatisfactory Ofsted inspection report.[1] The school exited special measures in 2013 and converted to academy status in January 2014, sponsored by the Ormiston Academies Trust.[2]

Notable former pupils[edit]

The classical and pop musician, media personality and model Myleene Klass attended the school in the 1990s before becoming a member of the band Hear'Say.[3]
