A SCHOOL WHERE STUDENTS ARE SAFE, HAPPY, AMBITIOUS FOR THEMSELVES, RESPECTFUL OF ALL AND ARE AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING THAT STAFF DO
West Bromwich Collegiate Academy is an oversubscribed, inclusive, 11-16 school dedicated to serving our local community.
With 156 places available in Year 7, we welcome students from all backgrounds and abilities, fostering a strong and inclusive school community.
We care deeply about opportunity and decency, with the aim of making our students great people as well as great students.
Established in 2019, with brand new, superb facilities, our Academy has undergone an amazing journey of growth and development and this year will have 805 students on roll.
As part of Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust, we enjoy valuable support and collaborative opportunities across our academies.
We believe in equipping our students with essential skills and knowledge for a successful and fulfilling future, while simultaneously nurturing their personal growth and development.
We aspire to develop individuals who are not only academically proficient but also decent, upstanding members of the community.
Most importantly we want our students to be safe, happy, ambitious for themselves and respectful of all.
This forms the cornerstone of our approach, placing students at the heart of everything we do.
We firmly believe that our students have the potential to achieve greatness, on par with their peers nationally and internationally.
By providing them with opportunities within the curriculum and through extensive extra-curricular
activities, such as sport, art, design and music, we empower them to reach their West Bromwich Collegiate Academy full potential.
These activities also allow students to explore their interests and talents, providing a platform for
showcasing their abilities.
Our students have already achieved remarkable success by participating in and winning national
competitions and receiving prestigious awards.
Our Literacy for Life curriculum enriches the experiences of our Key Stage 3 students and facilitates a smooth transition from primary to secondary school.
Rather than having 13 or 14 new teachers, year 7 students have 17 hours with the same teacher, who acts as a direct point of contact for you at the Academy.
This teacher will have a comprehensive understanding of your child’s progress and wellbeing during their time with us, truly helping your child to progress.
Our curriculum is technology rich, with a laptop for every child to use at the Academy.
Principal George Faux said: “At West Bromwich Collegiate Academy, we go above and beyond to provide our students with an enriching and transformative educational experience.
We are committed to nurturing the whole child, ensuring they excel academically and discover their true
potential, flourishing in every aspect of their lives.
