Our Values

At Tamworth Enterprise College


At AET, we choose to be unusually brave. We're not afraid to challenge wrongs, to make the right call, even when it's both unusual and difficult to do so.


We are on the search for discovering what's possible. We look to create 'eureka moments' for our students, helping them discover a world of possibilities and opportunities.


We always strive to push the limits. We don't settle for less than excellent and we won't allow our students to either. We resolve to overcome any self-imposed limits.


We commit to being big-hearted. We choose to treat each other with kindness, warmth and care, believing that everybody matters and believing in one another.


'The support the boys have received from TEC has been outstanding. We are especially appreciative of how quickly both boys were provided with devices to work on. TEC have been very understanding and supportive from the beginning, The mentoring phone calls over the summer holiday have been very helpful and informative.'

Our Remarkable Curriculum

Tamworth Enterprise College is a successful, high-achieving, secondary school where everyone is given the opportunity to do their best, whatever their background or ability.

We are committed to providing a rigorous yet inclusive curriculum which challenges our students to reach their full potential. This will empower our students to gain success in any field and will play an instrumental role in closing the gap for disadvantaged students.

Our curriculum offer is driven by a strong moral purpose. We are proud of our provision for children with special needs.

On entry, students’ attainment levels are used to place them in teaching sets for all subjects except for PE. These sets are reviewed throughout the year and changes are made based on the students' progress, interim assessments and teacher judgements.

Student progress is monitored through informal and formal assessment in each curriculum area, and parents are kept informed through regular effort and progress checks.

The curriculum is further strengthened by a variety of intervention and support strategies to ensure that the curriculum is relevant and accessible for all students.

The vertical tutor group system, together with a huge variety of extracurricular activities enhances the learning process and contributes hugely to the strong community spirit in the school.

The Accelerated Reader Scheme from Renaissance Learning is used in Years 7 to 9 to improve reading.


'We just wanted to wish you a well deserved summer break and say a big thank you for all the support and encouragement you have given K over the past few months. She hasn’t found lockdown particularly easy at times and it has been difficult to keep her motivated, but we are pleased with how well she has done especially with her work experience week which she really enjoyed. Thank you for giving her the opportunity to take part in the presentation and for her certificate, well done notes through the post and the amazon vouchers! We have enjoyed all the Friday assemblies. Please pass on our thanks to all of K’s teachers for the live lessons.'

Our £1,000,000+ investment in sport this year has allowed our students and community to engage in their passions and abilities. Our new state-of-the-art Premier League artificial 3G football pitch has been an incredible success with students and the surrounding community. The Pitch has been designed with the same dimensions as Wembley stadium and has official approval from the FA in its grade quality.

Our Swimming pool is currently having a new roof so our students can love their PE lessons for years to come. The pool is used for Physical Education and for life saving lessons delivered to year 7s on their arrival to Tamworth Enterprise College.
