THREE Cradley Heath students have been selected to take part in the West Midlands Regional Athletics Championships later this month.

The Ormiston Forge Academy students will represent Sandwell Schools Athletics Association at the West Midlands Championships at Solihull Athletics Stadium on Saturday June 14 after qualifying in the Sandwell Athletics Senior Championship.

Brittany Stewart, 15, and Wesley Francis, 13, both from Old Hill, have both been selected for shot put and discus, while Shannon Roche, 15, from Halesowen will take part in the triple jump.

Andrew Burns, Principal at Ormiston Forge Academy said, "Sporting triumph and academic triumph is accomplished by competing and working hard. Everyone at Forge will be cheering these talented young people on later this month.

"It's a great achievement to represent your county and to have three students compete at this level is testament to our 'work hard, play hard' philosophy."

Ormiston Forge Academy opened in January 2012, replacing the former Heathfields High School.
