Friends of Forge

Friends of Forge (FoF) is a group of parents, teachers and associates of the Academy, who meet regularly throughout the academic year to support us and our students. 

FoF works with the community to organise events and raise funds throughout the year. We create opportunities for our Academy to develop relations within the local community and empower parents in helping enrich the lives of the students.

We meet at Forge roughly once every half term (alongside correspondence via e-mail, Facebook and a WhatsApp group) to discuss, plan and reflect on a busy calendar of fun social events throughout the year.

Our primary focus is to bring the Academy and parent communities closer together and in doing so raise funds which we gift to the school to put towards ‘added value’ facilities that the students might not otherwise benefit from. We are always keen to have new people on board and there are lots of fun ways to get involved. If you have time to spare and would like to lend a hand at any point in the year, we would love to hear from you. Friends of Forge is an important part of what makes Ormiston Forge Academy such a special school.
