About us

Ormiston Forge Academy (formerly Heathfield Foundation Technology College and Heathfield High School) is an oversubscribed secondary school and sixth form with academy status located in the Old Hill area of Cradley Heath, West Midlands, England. Heathfield High School was built in the 1970s when two local schools Cradley Heath Secondary School, in the Lomey Town area of Cradley Heath, and Macefield Secondary School, in Old Hill, merged. The name of the school was coined from the names of the two schools: Cradley Heath and Macefield.

As of January 1st 2012, the school became an Academy sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust. The school was then renamed Ormiston Forge Academy. Today, the Academy serves pupils living in the Cradley Heath, Old Hill and Rowley Regis areas of Sandwell. The Academy has a large learning infrastructure, which enables young people and the community access to technology and facilities.

The Academy has around 1,600 students aged between 11 and 19, this includes a Sixth Form which provides a continuity of education and a strong sense of family.

In March 2016 and October 2019 the Academy was graded Good by Ofsted.
