Year 6-7 Transition

A message from the Principal

Welcome year 6 students. We are really looking forward to you starting in September and I hope that the information you find here is useful. Everyone at Ormiston Forge Academy understands that this must be a very scary time for you, even I remember moving to big school when I was your age. I want you to know what a fantastic place you are coming to, that we will look after you and if you promise to do your very best every day we will provide you with fantastic opportunities. Our students travel the world, play instruments, go to university, score goals, get good qualifications and smile; they smile a lot. I hope to see your smile in September.

Dr Lisa Mason


Transition to September 2020 will be a little different this year. We’ll be updating this page with information that we send out to parents, the latest will be dated and at the top. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Thank you.

This week our transition update is about uniform. We’ve been talking to our uniform supplier – A Oakes – about their response to Covid-19 and we’ve produced a handy flyer with everything that you need on it. We know that you’ve already had this info in your welcome pack, including the £25 voucher, but we wanted to let you know that Mr Oakes is now open for business and has given us these assurances.

Until further notice, the opening time of the uniform shop will be: Monday to Saturday from 10am until 4 pm. The shop is closed all day on Wednesday and Sunday.

The shop can be found at:

A Oakes Limited
Oakend House
174-180 Vicarage Road
West Midlands
B68 8JB

The contact number for the shop is 0121 552 1684.

We’d also like to mention that the privacy policy for students that was included in your original welcome pack has been updated to include live learning. We have a legal requirement to inform you of this and you can find the updated policy here:

If you have any questions about the uniform or about the policy, email us at

We appreciate that the update this week is geared more toward parents. Hope you don’t mind. We have some great video content coming up over the next few weeks for students.

Thank you.
