Dear Students and Parents

I am delighted to welcome you to Sandwell Academy. The Academy opened in 2006 and is sponsored by Tarmac, the Mercers Company, Thomas Telford School, HSBC Education Trust and West Bromwich Albion FC. The Academy works closely as part of a family of schools.

At Sandwell Academy we are extremely proud of our achievements. Ofsted graded the Academy as outstanding consecutively in November 2011 and January 2014. Student outcomes at GCSE and A Level have been exceptional and we are relentless in our pursuit of high standards and excellent teaching.

There is a firm emphasis on the traditional values of good behaviour, mutual respect and excellent attendance.  Celebration and challenge are the cornerstones of our broad curriculum including a flourishing extra-curricular programme.

Students benefit from state of the art facilities and modern equipment and can expect a safe and caring environment with high levels of pastoral support.

In return we expect great things from our students and see the Academy as an exciting place to learn where students can develop as confident, articulate young people who are interesting, balanced and independent and who care for each other.

I look forward to working with you.

Simon Topper
