School Philosophy

•  We stress the power of education and learning to make a difference in all our lives
•  We  provide a supportive pastoral structure
•  We insist on challenging and effective classroom practice
•  We provide opportunities for pupils to be recognised for a range of achievements and;
•  We expect to make “critical interventions” in students’ learning and monitor, review and evaluate these

Our Staff

•  believe that success breeds success and therefore look for and build on the positive previous achievement of students while addressing areas of concern.
•  are committed to raising achievement.
•  recognise the strengths of linguistic, social and cultural diversity.
•  have a firm commitment to all aspects of Birmingham’s Equal Opportunities’ Policy.

Admission Limits

The school is popular with parents and demand for places is very high.
For several years, the school has received 600 first-choice applicants for 120 places available. The present size of the school building prevents the Governors and Local Authority increasing the admission number. We use the Local Authority Admissions Policy in all cases.
