"Greenwood Academy is a caring, welcoming school. Staff take time to get to know each pupil. Leaders have created a strong community where staff and pupils look after each other. This extends beyond the school gates. Leaders have built effective links with families and the wider community. Leaders are ambitious for pupils. They want pupils to leave school with the qualifications and experiences they need to be successful. Teachers expect a lot from pupils. Pupils rise to this challenge. They are rightly proud of their work and take their studies seriously. Teachers are quick to recognise and celebrate pupils’ success. "

Throughout their time at Greenwood, your child will access a rigorous knowledge and skills rich curriculum including a regular diet of core subjects (English, Maths and Science), the Arts, Design Technology, Humanities, Physical Education and Modern Foreign Languages. Your child will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of opportunities beyond the classroom which includes residential trips, musical productions, sports competitions and charity fundraising events such as the ‘Sleep Out’ raising awareness of homelessness in Birmingham. At Greenwood, we celebrate personal growth, success, dedication and hard work through forms, year groups and whole school celebrations, including weekly and termly assemblies and House awards.
