‘Sandwell Valley school is a charity and an independent school offering alternative provision to pupils aged 11 to 18. The school was opened in September 2016 and rated as ‘GOOD’ by Ofsted in November 2017.
Our school collaborates with schools and education authorities. We provide places for young people who are for instance:
• New to the UK.
• Those who prefer and thrive in smaller and nurturing settings.
• Those who have a statement of educational needs (social and emotional).
We believe that every young person should have the opportunity to succeed by being motivated and inspired. We aim to develop young people into unique and responsible citizens of society with a sense of their own values.
We cater for up to 175 pupils who study qualifications including GCSEs and Functional skills.
We pride ourselves on personalising the education we provide each pupil, to re-engage their interest and plug the gaps in their education. Our team of staff offer pastoral support and spend time with pupils to develop their confidence and motivation levels.’
We aim to facilitate a culture for our pupils and staff which develops and builds upon knowledge to promote self belief and respect in one's own ability.
