The Rural Enterprise Academy is a truly unique secondary school with an environmentally focussed curriculum. In September 2022 we will be admitting students into Years 7 and 9.
Our ethos is centred around environmental sustainability and we aim to achieve this though educating the environmental pioneers of the future. We have many examples of former students that have gone on to achieve amazing things such as working in Brazil, Australia,
New Zealand and Portugal, fulfilling their dreams of working globally in the environmental, sustainability and landbased sector.
Our students achieve their ambitions by demonstrating the core attributes of respect, resilience and aspiration. We believe in giving our students the freedom to grow and develop as they work their way through the school.
All students will study a core of subjects including English, Maths and Science alongside Geography and Business Studies to ensure they have the key skills for the future. Alongside this are a range of specialised options subjects such as Horticulture, Construction, Environmental Science, Animal Care and Equine Studies.
We were most recently inspected by Ofsted in 2018 and we received a ‘Good’ judgement.
Some of things in the report that we were really proud of were that all pupils made really good progress; that the curriculum is well tailored to students’ personal interests; that pupils behave well; and that there is a positive and aspirational culture throughout the school.
Not only do we have a unique curriculum, but we are also unique in lots of other ways. Our quiet, rural campus is located on the picturesque Rodbaston Campus of South Staffordshire College, just outside Penkridge, and enjoys beautiful views of open countryside from teaching rooms. We are also unique as we a very small school where all students and teachers know each other well and form a close-knit community.
