Sixth Form Open Event 2021

We will host our annual open event on Thursday 25th November for prospective post-16 students

Students who are due to start post-16 studies in September 2022 are invited to visit Forge Sixth Form to get a taster of life and study with us.

Ormiston Forge Academy Sixth Form will host its annual open event on Thursday 25th November for prospective post-16 students

Whether you are thinking about moving onto university, an apprenticeship, employment or a gap year, you can be sure that you will find courses to suit and challenge you at our Sixth Form. With over 20 courses to choose from, we provide a varied curriculum that gives you the opportunity to choose subjects you will love and succeed in over the next two years.

The doors will be open from 5.00pm–7.00pm on Thursday 25th November. To control the flow of visitors throughout the evening I would appreciate it if you would arrive between 5pm-6pm if your child’s surname begins with the letters A-L, and 6pm-7pm if their surname begins with M-Z.

Visitors will be able to see the enormous variety and quality of courses Forge has to offer students for study after year 11. A number of universities will be in attendance including UOB, Newman University, University College Birmingham, University of Worcester as well as The Access Project who help students improve their grades even more and support their applications to top universities.

Darren Grimes, Assistant Principal for Key Stage 5, said: “As well as outstanding levels of pastoral support, our academic programme is second-to-none. Our first Cambridge student is now in her final year and we have four more students on medicine pathways at university. Twelve students are currently on the medicine pathway at Forge and our results have shown that over the last few years, students who study in our sixth form do well.

"We’ve created an environment where students are able to flourish; it’s a safe place where they have academic and pastoral support, and the result is that they are happy and successful. We are really looking forward to showing our outcomes to prospective parents and students.

The event, on Thursday 25 November 2021, is open to current students at Forge as well as external candidates. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.
