Tettenhall College is an independent day and boarding school for two-18 year olds situated in the picturesque village of Tettenhall on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border.
A spokesman for the college said: “We provide an exceptional learning environment with the focus on individual potential in an inclusive, vibrant community.
The emphasis is on an education that develops the whole person both in and beyond the classroom with exceptional extra-curricular opportunities that complement rigorous academic standards.
Academically, results are consistently high and the school was placed 365th in the Times Good Schools Guide in 2017, over two thirds of sixth form pupils achieved top grades of A*, A orBwhile 50 per cent of the Year 11 pupils achieved 9 or more GCSE A*-C grades; 27% per cent of all grades were at the top level of A*or A.
“Life skills and preparation for life beyond school are important elements of the educational offering here and this permeates from Nursery through to Sixth Form.
It is especially apparent in the new 6th Form Centre with dedicated facilities for independent study and recreation to support older pupils in the transition to higher education and employment.”
The school runs an extended day programme which challenges and stretches pupils in a wide range of opportunities.
Pupils consistently achieve beyond expectations, leaving as well-rounded, confident young adults ready to face the challenges ahead.
Many continue their education at top universities, with alumni at such places as Oxford, Cambridge, Bath and Warwick.
Others have earned places at specialised institutions including RADA, or prestigious industrial placements with renowned businesses.
The school runs an extended day programme which challenges and stretches pupils in a wide range of opportunities, giving them as broad and varied an education as possible.
The wide array of extra-curricular options and sports – from rock climbing to engineering, business enterprise to dance – ensures that everyone will find their niche and grow in confidence.
A proud tradition and ethos coupled with a forward-thinking modernity sets Tettenhall College apart.
Time honoured, listed buildings standing alongside contemporary architecture provides an apt visual representation of the school personality.
The school has come a long way since its foundation over 150 years ago by local industrialists originally with 15 boys and a cow (to supply the boys with milk).
Yet the traditional values and the wonderful historic setting remain the same.
The spokesman added: “This is a secure, happy environment and pupils and staff are staunchly proud of their school. For potential newcomers this is an exciting time to join us as development plans come to fruition. New multi-purpose sports pitches, squash courts and study facilities as well as refurbished boarding houses signal a new chapter in our history.
“Our Open Days are a perfect way to come and see the school and our facilities as well as meet our staff and pupils.
You will be shown around the school by one of our pupils and there is plenty of opportunity for you and your child to interact with members of staff and find out more about everything that we offer.
“Our next whole school open morning will be held on September 29, 2018. We will be conducting tours of the school starting at various times between 10.00 and 12.30.”
Depending on the age of your child, your tour will take place in either Preparatory School or Senior School.
