Message from The Head

Dear Students and Parents

It gives me great pleasure to share with you the fantastic opportunity that exists for local children at Sandwell Academy.

Sandwell Academy opened in 2006 and now educates over 1,200 students, recruiting 200 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 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, and is a school where students receive praise, support 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.

In November 2011, January 2014 and again in May 2017 Ofsted graded the Academy as Outstanding. 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 and a strong work ethic and motivation to succeed are vital. Teachers and parents are required to work together in partnership to ensure children make excellent progress.

If you are interested in finding out more, please come and visit us on one of our information evenings.
