Mountain Centre

As well as outstanding facilities at the academy all students also have the opportunity to access our Mountain Centre in Dinas Mawddwy, in the Dovey Valley in Wales. This provides a unique provision enabling different groups of our students to experience a variety of outdoor activities not possible in an urban environment. Student voice and active involvement play an important part in the upkeep and future developments at the Mountain Centre.

Ormiston Forge Academy’s mountain centre is used by students staff and governors throughout the academic year for a range of activities including:

  • The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme
  • Work experience
  • Outdoor pursuits courses (mountaineering, walking, rock climbing, pot- holing)
  • Curriculum related activities (recent visits have included subject groups to study Technology, Science, P.E, Geography and Music)
  • Cultural visits
  • Staff visits
