BUILDING ON STRENGTHS OF STUDENTS TO ENSURE THAT THEY REACH THEIR POTENTIAL,
WORK TOWARDS THEIR AMBITION AND MAKE A POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY
Phoenix is a ‘great’ school, with an ever-improving reputation within the West Midlands.
As a school, staff follow our motto ‘Aspire, Believe, Succeed’ to build on the strengths of our students to ensure that every student reaches their full potential, work towards their ambitions and make a positive contribution to society.
We are one of the top performing schools in Sandwell, with exceptional GCSE results over the past few years For Phoenix to continue its work towards being outstanding, currently we are ‘good’ in every Ofsted area, staff will be looking at creating ever greater partnerships with parents/carers, as well as the whole community including enhanced links with local businesses.
Headteacher Mike Smith said: “I would encourage all members of the community, potential students and parents/carers, to visit the school during our September open events, to see our wonderful new facilities and experience the special atmosphere here at Phoenix.”
Our population is approximately 1950 and is genuinely comprehensive.
Almost 50% of students come from ethnic minority groups. By placing your children with Phoenix you are choosing an environment which mirrors, as closely as possible, the diverse society in which we live and work.

We have an exceptional team of teaching and support staff here at Phoenix who pride themselves on developingbstrong relationships with our students.
We are a school which prides itself on a high staff morale and very low staff turnover as we invest heavily in their ongoing training and professional development.
Our curriculum offer here at Phoenix is broad and balanced and where many schools have cut back on the arts, sports and vocational curriculum, this is something we continue to invest in.
Our offer includes a rich and varied extra-curricular programme that includes academic opportunities alongside a vast array of others including many sports and performing arts.
As part of our enrichment offer, we have the fastest growing combined cadet force in the country with a Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Royal Marine section at the school.
We also offer the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award which gives our students many skills and attributes that the jobs market looks for.
To support this we deliver our Phoenix Edge which enables students to develop their character education through a certified programme.
We recognise that any transition can be an anxious time and this is never truer than when starting a new school.
At Phoenix we aim to empower students to positively manage all transition phases by making sure that they are informed and have appropriate experiences before starting secondary school with us.
For new students coming into Year 7, we work closely with their primary schools. We invite all students to a two-day transition event during July along with their parents/carers.
We have a dedicated primary transition transfer team of staff. You can contact this team by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
