Message from The Head

Dear Students and Parents

It gives me great pleasure to share with you one of the most exciting developments in education within the region for many years.

Sandwell Academy, which opened in 2006, now educates over 1200 students, recruiting 180 students each year into Year 7 and a Sixth Form of 350 students.

Sandwell Academy 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 including Madeley Academy, Walsall Academy and Thomas Telford School.

Sandwell Academy is proud of its achievements, where students receive praise, celebration and challenge.  We are relentless in our pursuit of high standards and excellent teaching.

Students benefit from state of the art facilities and modern equipment in all areas, especially in Sport, Business and ICT.

Ofsted graded the Academy as outstanding consecutively in November 2011 and January 2014. Students benefit from a broad curriculum, a flourishing extra-curricular programme, a safe and caring environment with high levels of pastoral support and an emphasis on traditional values of good behaviour, mutual respect and excellent attendance.

We expect great things from our students; teachers and parents work together with commitment and dedication to achieve success.

Please come and visit us to find out more.
