Ormiston Victory Academy (formerly Costessey High School) is a secondary school and sixth form with academy status located in Costessey, Norfolk, England. The school has specialisms in Science and Applied Learning.

The school serves the areas of Easton, Marlingford, East Tuddenham, Bawburgh and the neighbouring suburb of Bowthorpe, as well as Costessey. The school offers GCSEs as programmes of study, which can be used to obtain the English Baccalaureate. Sixth form students have the option to study a range of A Levels.

Costessey High School was renamed Ormiston Victory Academy in September 2010.[1] The academy opened using the existing buildings and is sponsored by the Ormiston Academies Trust, a charity which supports children, young people and families in their community. The Academy's strategic partners are Norfolk County Council and Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. A new complex designed by Nicholas Hare Architects has been built replacing the old school buildings, and can now cater for 1250 pupils. The academy received a £15 million to revamp the old site.[2] The new school buildings will open in November 2013.[3]
