Thank you for taking the time to visit our website at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull. We are the highest achieving non-selective school in the Borough of Solihull and are proud to again be handsomely placed in the top 5% of non-selective schools nationally. It is a privilege and an honour to be the Principal at this outstanding Academy and I thank the staff, students and the community for their continued effort and support.
Tudor Grange Academy Solihull continues to have an excellent national reputation and as a Leading Edge Academy we are at the very forefront of educational reform and change. It is because we are at the cutting edge with teacher training, assessment and teaching and learning that we are proud of the consistency that we offer. For four consecutive years we have registered over 90% of our students achieving 5 A*-C Grades including English and Maths at the end of year 11. This has translated into a high performing sixth form with a large number of students going on to study at Tudor Grange at Post 16 whilst an increasing number of external students apply to our thriving community. The vast majority of students achieve the destinations of their choice, whether it be a Russell Group University or an apprenticeship.
This year’s GCSE results witnessed 90% of our students achieving the ‘Gold Standard’ of 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths with over a third achieving 5 or more A*-A grades. This hugely impressive figure is matched by 55% achieving the much discussed EBacc and when considering the new measures of Progress 8 and Attainment 8 we have maintained our position as one the leading education providers in the country. The high standards continue at post 16, where the sixth form students gained a phenomenal 98.2% A*-E and an incredible 57.1% of all grades were A*-B which is comparable with the best schools in the country and reinforces our status as an outstanding Academy.
As an Academy we have a strong commitment to traditional values and a focus on continuous improvement and development. Our ambition is to deliver a world class education and allow our students to become highly successful and qualified people, with a strong sense of moral purpose. We make no apology for placing a high priority on excellent behaviour, attendance, uniform and the highest possible standards as an expected norm. In addition to our students’ successes, we were selected as one of the first hundred teaching schools which goes from strength to strength and enables us to be at the forefront of developments in teaching and learning. Our status as a National Support School further allows us to develop education nationally.
We really do believe that we offer a high quality education experience to every child who chooses to attend the Academy. We care about our students’ development and achievements and we endeavour to provide first class support and every opportunity for our students to thrive. Enhancing social, practical and employability skills through our robust curriculum is key and we have a plethora of enrichment and extra-curricular activities which grow every year in popularity thanks to the level of dedication from staff and the sheer enthusiasm of our young people. Tudor Grange Academy, Solihull is definitely an Academy where students enjoy themselves, work hard and receive great encouragement and success.
Mr D Turner MA Ed, Principal
