King Edward VI Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy is proud to serve the community of Handsworth and Northwest Birmingham. We are a non-selective, comprehensive, thriving, diverse and academically successful school for girls aged 11-18. Our Academy is part of the King Edward VI Foundation and we are committed to helping it deliver its mission to make Birmingham the best place to be educated.

Regardless of their background or starting points, we expect all our students will achieve the highest academic standards. We also believe if we equip our students with the universal values of scholarship, character and community it will serve them well at university, in training, the workplace and their lives.

We are committed to the value of a broad and balanced curriculum, which is flexible and responsive to the needs of our students and well-matched to their aspirations.

Finally, we are a technology rich school which provides all students with a 1:1 device at no cost to families to support with their learning both in lessons and at home.

If you would like to come and see the Academy in action please contact us by phone, our website, or via email at and we will be delighted to show you around our Academy, which we are extremely proud of.
