Ormiston Horizon Academy, formerly known as James Brindley High School/James Brindley Science College, is an 11–16 mixed school located along Turnhurst Road in Chell, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. Most pupils are from the surrounding areas such as Chell, Chell Heath, Fegg Hayes, Pitts Hill and Packmoor.
In September 2013 the staff and pupils moved into their new building, which was built on the site of an old hospital. Next door, a retirement village has been built .
Until September 2011, the academy was known as James Brindley Science College. During the summer of 2011 the school was renovated and re-opened to students as "Ormiston Horizon Academy" on 7 September 2011. The blue jumpers and white polo shirts were replaced with a purple laced blazer and white shirt, along with a coloured tie that indicates the House that the pupil is in.
Work has now[when?] been completed on a new building to replace the existing buildings, which were in a state of disrepair. The new two-storey building was built with four wings housing various basic and specialised classrooms, as well as serving as bases for the school’s four houses: Aquila (Red), Cygnus (Green), Draco (Blue) and Pegasus (Yellow). Once the new academy building was opened, the school was able to accommodate more pupils, including Post-16 and Sixth Form facilities.
