A SCHOOL WORKING HARD TO ENSURE CHILDREN HAVE THE VERY BEST EDUCATION AND OPPORTUNITIES AND ARE INSPIRED TO DEVELOP VALUES OF LOVE AND RESPECT
Regis School opened in 1955 as one of the first Comprehensive Schools in the country.
Built with numerous specialist facilities, including a swimming pool, many families moved to Tettenhall so their children could attend Regis School. The children that came to the school had a fantastic education overseen by the inspirational Headmaster, Sir Godfrey Cretney.
Almost 80 years on, St Regis Church of England Academy is still offering a fantastic education to the children of Wolverhampton. Recently designated a Good and Excellent school by Ofsted and Church inspections, St Regis Academy offers families a first-class education whilst promoting values of love and respect.
In April 2023, the school joined the Three Spires Trust under its then non-Latin name – The King’s School. Now reclaiming its old Latin name and formally joined with its sister academy St Peter’s Collegiate, both St Regis and St Peter’s are working together to ensure children have the very best education and opportunities.
St Regis and St Peter’s are two academies founded upon Christian values. They share a belief that children learn best when they have positive relationships with adults and each other. Good relationships are founded upon respect and good conduct. These may sound like Old fashioned ideas, but for St Regis and St Peter’s good manners and mutual respect are as important as exam success.
Mr Ed Parry, founding Principal of St Regis Academy, said: “At St Regis we want all our children to be happy, safe and St Regis C of E Academy successful. We think this starts and ends with children demonstrating good conduct and respect. I’d like to think they would be wearing a smile too!
This is the St Regis Way.” Mr Parry’s priorities for St Regis Academy are to be outstanding in the following six areas:
Teaching that inspires,
Post-16 Education, in conjunction with St Peter’s,
Preparation for life and work
St Regis Academy and St Peter’s Collegiate are both about to get multi million-pound upgrades to their buildings. Work has already begun at St Regis Academy and is scheduled at St Peter’s in January.
Mrs Emily Verow, CEO at the Three Spires Trust, said: “We are thrilled to see our academies in Wolverhamptonmoving forward in partnership. Our focus is on ensuring the children at St Regis Academy and St Peter’s Academy achieve their very best in all that they do. We will support the improvement of our schools through collaboration, purposeful support and guidance and in ensuring modern resources and buildings fit for purpose.”
