PROVIDING AN EXCEPTIONAL FOUNDATION FOR LEARNING, CELEBRATING SUCCESSES
AND OFFERING OPPORTUNITIES NEEDED TO BECOME SELF-CONFIDENT YOUNG ADULTS
Are you and your child looking for a school that will support them, nurture them and ensure they succeed both academically and socially?
Oldbury Academy is a happy and vibrant school providing an excellent quality of education for all.
Academic excellence and personal development are the two most important parts of any child’s education.
Our children leave Oldbury Academy achieving some fantastic GCSE results because success for every student is our absolute priority.
Our holistic and well-rounded approach towards education provides an exceptional foundation for life-long learning, recognising and celebrating successes and offering the opportunities needed for our students to become self confident young adults.
Our objective is to drive academic progress and achievement and at the same time instil the values of respect, courtesy, tolerance and cooperation, guiding our students to become valuable members of our community beyond school.
We have been on an incredible journey of school improvement, at the forefront of changes to the curriculum and the way in which young people can be taught to know more, understand more and do more.
As Ofsted recognised, our ‘pupils study an ambitious curriculum’.
We want our students to achieve the very best that they are capable of and we produce some incredible examination results.
Our partnership with the other schools in Stour Vale Academy Trust opens even more exciting opportunities for our staff and students to excel.
Our pastoral system is second to Oldbury Academy none, supporting each and every child to achieve their very best.
The move to secondary school is a big step and we recognise how important it is for all of our new students to feel safe and part of the Oldbury Academy community as quickly as possible.
Ofsted recognised that ‘pupils value this support and this means they feel safe at school’.
We recognise the importance of enriching the curriculum for our students and work hard to provide such opportunities.
Our trip opportunities are frequent and varied, aimed at supporting the curriculum but also developing and nurturing interests and hobbies.
Just a few of the opportunities our students have had this year are: theatre trips; e-sports showcase and competition; museum trips; go-karting; German exchange programme; Go Ape; geocaching adventure; Duke of Edinburgh, theme parks; football matches at Wembley and Old Trafford; football museum and stadium tours; revision residential visits and of course the long awaited ski trip to Canada and Niagara Falls coming up soon.
We offer around 40 extra-curricular opportunities each week – everything from chess club and craft club to dodgeball and drama.
We also run regular character development days, offering opportunities to develop skills beyond the usual curriculum.
Our students learn first aid and why volunteering is important.
They take part in enterprise days and workshops with industry leaders developing employability skills.
In year 7, our students are encouraged to step outside their comfort zone with a visit from the Animal Man and a Taskmaster challenge day.
We debate topics in the news or moral dilemmas every week, encouraging our students to broaden their understanding whilst developing their communication skills.
School is about developing the whole child and providing life changing skills, opportunities and memories.
We are opening the doors for their future. So if your child is looking for a school that will support them, nurture them and ensure they succeed both academically and socially come along and see what we
have to offer.
Our open evening is on Monday 25th September from 6pm – 8pm or book online for our morning tours.
