Offering an exceptional education in an inspiring environment, Sandwell Academy has established itself as one of the leading schools in the region.
Students benefit from state-of-the art facilities and modern equipment in all areas, especially Science, Sport, Business and ICT.
The Academy’s inclusive ethos means it caters for all abilities, with opportunities at every level and helps every individual child fulfil their potential. Headteacher Ian Williams said: “A
balance of academic and vocational qualifications ensure that students benefit from a personalised and tailored curriculum and our pupils’ consistently high results reflect the hard work and dedication of staff.
“Our focus on careers and strong industry links give pupils a solid foundation for a successful future and they receive support for every step of their educational journey, from starting in Year 7 to completing A-levels in our sixth form.
“Sandwell Academy maintains high standards for its staff and pupils and has achieved three successive outstanding ratings from Ofsted, testament to the hard work of all involved.
Inspectors have praised the Academy’s inspiring curriculum as well as our extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities. We are proud to offer an extensive cultural, sporting and
performing arts programme alongside our academic provision and encouraging participation at all levels.
“To support these activities, we are fortunate to have our own theatre, athletics track, fitness centre, dance studios and recording studio, as well as excellent curriculum facilities.”
The Academy opened in 2006 and now educates over 1,300 students, welcoming 200 students each year into Year 7 and 180 students into Year 12. Sandwell Academy works closely with partner schools, and is part of the Thomas Telford Multi Academy Trust.
Mr Williams added: “Students receive praise, support and challenge to help them achieve their goals and we provide a safe and caring environment with high levels of pastoral support and an emphasis on traditional values of good behaviour, mutual respect and excellent attendance.
“Our expectations of students are high and a strong work ethic and motivation to succeed are vital. Teachers and parents are required to work together in partnership to ensure children make excellent progress.
“We pride ourselves on making a genuine, positive difference to the lives of young people in Sandwell and help them become confident, rounded individuals.”
