Happy New Year!!
Welcome back to a new term and a new year. I hope that your Christmas was filled with light, love and warmth and that you are ready to face the opportunities and challenges of a brand new decade.
After challenges and setbacks of our own, we are now set to sign the contracts that will convert us from a Local Authority school to an Academy, completing our entry into Robin Hood MAT. This will mark the start of a new era of collaboration and opportunity for the school. It will open up new thinking, new opportunities and new resources for school improvement.
Despite this change, we will always remain at heart a Solihull school serving Solihull families in Solihull. We intend to remain as part of the Solihull family of schools, drawing upon the skills, expertise and opportunities offered by our own family of schools.
