The school is situated on a quiet campus in Handsworth. To the front and back of the school are playing fields which are used for PE and sport. The school itself has two main blocks. All classrooms are well-equipped with data projectors and interactive white boards to support the delivery of high quality teaching and learning. We have wireless technology across the site enabling staff and students to access the network no matter where they are. In addition, we are very fortunate to have a hall which can be used flexibly to provide a space for a whole range of different events, e.g. assemblies, parents’ evenings, drama and music productions.
All faculties are suited together, which benefits communication between staff as well as providing a base for that particular area. Our facilities for Visual and Performing Arts are extensive: four drama studios, a dance studio, a music classroom with four practice rooms and a recording studio, and two large art rooms. All areas of the specialism are very well-equipped with the latest technology and resources.
We also have very good facilities to support students with special educational needs and those who have English as an additional language. One-to-one support or small group work is provided to provide personalised support for these students.
Our site team are very proactive in keeping the school safe, clean and tidy for the students and the staff. We constantly monitor the facilities and address issues that arise promptly.
