The size of Brownhills School enables every student to be noticed and treated as an individual.
Safeguarding, care and guidance are exemplary as noted by Ofsted in May 2017 and Leadership and management are outstanding at all levels in the school.
The capacity of the leadership team to keep improving the school was noted by Ofsted and the leadership of teaching and learning was described as a strength of the school.
A school spokesman said: “It is obviously pleasing for us to have the qualities of the school recognised by Ofsted although we value the feedback from our students and parents/carers even more highly as they help us to keep improving the school on a regular basis.
“The heart of the school is found within the areas of performing arts and sport with a busy schedule of school teams and clubs at lunchtime and after school for
those who want to excel as well as those who just want to participate.
“A dynamic and vibrant P.E. department help us to identify talented sports students at an early stage and provide them with extensive opportunities within school and at local clubs.
“A House system supports the development of leadership skills as well as helping to build character through organising events and supporting younger students.
“In performing arts, the school choir VIP-Voices in Partnership encourages students to grow in confidence and to work as part of a team while developing their vocal and performance skills.
The school offers free instrumental lessons because we believe that every student should have access to this opportunity.
The school’s Performance Director produces the annual musical productions and fosters the development of young performers through his work as the director of a professional theatre company.
“Brownhills School has gone from strength to strength academically because of the highly skilled and dedicated staff who give generously of their time outside
of lessons to support students through the demands of examination courses.
“All staff play a vital role in making sure the school runs efficiently and in supporting the welfare and well-being of students, especially those who may need
more individual attention.
“High achievers have an additional programme of enrichment opportunities to ensure that they remain ambitious for themselves.
The size of the school allows us to have this personalised approach.
“Due to our growing reputation and academic achievement, we operate 5 coach routes from across the Walsall and Staffordshire area.
We are now oversubscribed in each year group and appreciate the confidence shown in us by parents.
We welcome applications from children of all ability levels and we expect the full support and engagement of parents during their child’s education with us.”
The best way to appreciate what Brownhills School can offer your child is to visit during a school day or open evening.
These will be held on Tuesday, September 19 from 6pm-8.30pm and then on September 21, September 26 and October 3 from 9.15am -10.30am.
This will give you the opportunity to see the school’s facilities; including the theatre, swimming pool, language lab, catering suite, sports hall and 7 acres of sports fields.
More importantly it will give you the chance to meet staff and students so that you can see and hear the Brownhills experience for yourself
