The Forge family is everything we do. It is our philosophy, our success, our failure and a home. It is a welcoming, safe and passionate environment that allows us all to be the best we can be and it drives our values of resilience, aspiration and respect.
We pride ourselves on ensuring that all students are able to learn in an environment which is both safe and supportive, whilst recognising the individual needs of all our students.
We are proud of our Academy and expect all students to wear our simple uniform with pride.
Here at Ormiston Forge Academy we are relentless in our drive to offer a broad, balanced, knowledge-rich and age-related curriculum for students as they move through each year of education with us.
