The size of Brownhills School enables every student to be noticed and treated as an individual, with respect and high expectations.
Safeguarding, care and guidance are exemplary as noted by Ofsted in May 2017 and leadership and management are outstanding at all levels in the school.
The capacity of the leadership team to keep improving the school was noted by Ofsted and the leadership of teaching and learning was described as a strength of the school.
Helen Keenan, Headteacher, said: “It is obviously pleasing for us to have the qualities of the school recognised by Ofsted although we value the feedback from our students and parents/carers even more highly as they help us to keep improving the school on a regular basis.”
The heart of the school is found within the areas of performing arts and sport with a busy schedule of school teams and clubs at lunchtime and after school for those who want to excel as well as those who just want to participate.
A dynamic and vibrant P.E. department helps staff to identify talented sports students at an early stage and provide them with extensive opportunities within school and at local clubs.
A House system supports the development of leadership skills as well as helping to build character through organising events and supporting younger students.
In performing arts, the school choir VIP-Voices in Partnership encourages students to grow in confidence and to work as part of a team while developing their vocal and performance skills.
All staff play a vital role in making sure the school runs efficiently and in supporting the welfare and well-being of students.
The school offers free instrumental lessons because staff believe that every student should have access to this opportunity.
The school’s Performance Director produces the annual musical productions and fosters the development of young performers through his work as the director of a professional theatre company.
Brownhills School has gone from strength to strength academically because of the highly skilled and dedicated staff who give generously of their time outside of lessons to support students through the demands of examination courses.
All staff play a vital role in making sure the school runs efficiently and in supporting the welfare and well-being of students, especially those who may need more individual attention.
High achievers have an additional programme of enrichment opportunities to ensure that they remain ambitious for themselves.
The size of the school allows staff to have this personalised approach.
Due to the school’s growing reputation and academic achievement, they operate five coach routes from across the Walsall and Staffordshire area.
The school is now oversubscribed in each year group and staff appreciate the confidence shown in the school by parents.
The school welcomes applications from children of all ability levels and staff expect the full support and engagement of parents during their child’s education with Brownhills School.

Open mornings will also be held on Thursday, September 20 and Tuesday, October 2 at 9.15am (contact school to book a place on the open morning tour).
This will give you the opportunity to see the school’s excellent facilities; including the theatre, swimming pool, language lab, catering suite, sports hall and seven acres of sports fields.
More importantly it will give you the chance to meet staff and students so that you can see and hear the Brownhills experience for yourself.
