Sixth Form Open Event
It is with great pleasure to report that Oldbury Academy have been awarded the prestigious Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM). The IQM is awarded to schools who demonstrate excellence in their inclusion practice particularly with a focus on behaviour and safety of students, safeguarding and SEN practice. It also recognises the commitment to inclusion that the school has shown through the curriculum, teaching and learning, and its work in the wider community. We were assessed over a two day period in the Summer term and were very pleased to receive the award. Read the report here.
The car park at the end of the school day
For the foreseeable future our car park will be locked at 2.30pm and will re-open again at some point after 3.00pm. This is to promote the health and safety of our students.
If you are collecting your child at the end of the school day please park considerately and safely.
Welcome to Oldbury Academy
Thank you for your interest in the website at Oldbury Academy, an establishment with whom all partners are proud to be associated. Through the site we offer you a warm welcome and a unique insight, too, into our philosophy, our policy and our procedures. We have high expectations of both our students, and our staff and, through their hard work and commitment, we have made enormous progress in recent years and we are immensely proud of these achievements. Our fundamental aim is to provide your children with the very best teaching alongside a broader education in preparation for life after school. We concentrate all of our training, expertise and time towards ensuring that both teaching and learning is effective and, indeed, enjoyable. Nevertheless there is always room for improvement, there can be no complacency and no ceiling to where we might aim to be in the years to come. As head teacher, I urge all stakeholders, both current and future, to rise to this challenge and embrace those changes ahead that will allow us to move to these higher levels, by transforming the learning experience at Oldbury. Whatever your involvement with this very special place may I wish you all well as we move, together, on our journey.
Mr J Martin | Headteacher
