About the School
Phoenix is the largest secondary school in the West Midlands. Opened in September 2010, as a result of the merger of two local schools, Phoenix has established itself as one of the highest performing schools in the area, an accolade achieved through commitment to continually improving the quality of teaching and learning, and the provision of an exciting and dynamic learning experience for students. Our successful Sixth Form, of around 250 students, offers a broad array of Level 3 academic and vocational qualifications.
Over recent years, examination results have been constantly improving, and in 2024, we anticipate our best ever results. Phoenix’s ambition is to look, feel and behave like the best school in the country so that our students get a better deal here than they would at any other school
Phoenix was one of only a few schools nationally to benefit from the government’s priority schools building programme, and our state-of-the-art facilities which opened in 2017 are second to none. But we have not stopped there, with additional MUGAs, a climbing wall, low-level assault course and new teaching walls in every classroom with new interactive screens already added. By September 2025, we aim to have a new classroom block with gym facilities, as well as a 3G soccer pitch.
The school is proud of its achievements, its positive ethos and the excellent relationships that its ambitious and driven students have with its staff.
This is an exciting time for Phoenix’s future development and the new buildings will be a launchpad for the exciting journey ahead.
