Holly Hall Academy is a safe, vibrant and happy place in which students thrive.
The school serves a wide community with students aged between 11-16 years, in the centre of Dudley close to Russells Hall Hospital.
There are currently 654 students on roll with an even split between boys and girls.
The size of the Academy is a real strength as it is small enough to form strong relationships, based on mutual respect and trust, and ensure there is always a personal touch.
The majority of students have previously attended one of four main feeder schools, although there are as many as 20 other primaries who send students to the Academy.
The Principal said: “We believe in and insist on “Excellence for Everyone”.
“Our balanced and enriched curriculum provides for all academic aspirations as well as developing personal interests, talents and aptitudes. The ethos here is one of purpose and care. We seek to engage hearts and minds as students’ progress on their learning journey, developing their sense of citizenship, participation and respect; both for self and others.
“We are constantly developing the curriculum, recently combining the traditional core subjects with a new Performing Arts course.
We are also forging strong links with our friends at High Arcal, Hillcrest and Castle through our sponsorship from Dudley College (rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted) as we create a Multi-Academy Trust.
“We are very proud of the working relationships between staff and students, enhanced through our strong Student Leadership Team who have real responsibilities and roles to perform.
Our dedicated non-teaching pastoral team have the time and skills to deal with all types of issues.
They form first class relationships with our parents and are always available to support students.
“We are part of a national pilot scheme developing enterprise skills and we opened our brand new ‘Skills Centre’ in September 2016.
We are extremely well resourced with state of the art facilities in Technology and a high level of ICT access.
In addition we have a range of well-designed specialist rooms and a 21st century sports hall and fitness facility which was opened in 2014.
We have recently refurbished our specialist ICT suites.
“It is an exciting time to join Holly Hall as we deliver our future vision.
We look forward to you joining us on our continuing journey to success.
The future is very bright with many transformational developments in store.
Please come and visit us.
Personal tours are available during the Academy day.”
