About Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy
Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy is located in the Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell, and in very close proximity to the centre of Birmingham. It is a slightly larger than average, 11–16 co-educational academy with approximately 1,050 students. It has grown over the last few years and is now full and oversubscribed in every year group for the sixth consecutive year. The academy’s reputation locally is excellent, and the catchment area has shrunk dramatically over the years, with competition for places is fierce. Staff and students work in a very pleasant learning environment, which has benefitted from a major re-build and refurbishment programme. This has created exciting, new and well-equipped learning spaces. The majority of the academy’s students now live within a one-mile radius of the academy, making it an academy that is really at the heart of the community.
