Outstanding pupils from seven primary and secondary schools in Coleshill, Erdington and Four Oaks, came together last week for the first official meeting of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership Student Leadership Team. The landmark event – which took place at the Stockland Green School - marked the first time students from each academy in the respected multi-academy trust had been together at the same time. 

Fashion students at Walsall College are set to stage their dazzling annual Catwalk Show and showcase their creative designs to members of the public on Friday 17th June.

A delegation of senior higher education leaders from China’s Guangzhou Sport University (GSU) visited Birmingham City University this week to strengthen the ties between the two institutions. The visit, led by GSU President Professor Huang Zihua, aimed to explore areas of collaboration in sport and exercise science, as well as media and journalism in the sporting sector. The five members of the delegation were able to see progress on the £41 million expansion to Birmingham City University’s City South Campus in Edgbaston, consolidating its Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences on to one site.

The Education Business Partnership Centre (EPBC) at Jaguar Land Rover’s state-of-the-art Engine Manufacturing Centre (EMC) has celebrated its first birthday. The event coincided with a visit by Year 6 pupils from SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary Academy & Nursery in Wolverhampton, who helped the EMC’s Operations Director Trevor Leeks to cut a celebration cake. The visiting pupils toured the site and got to grips with the latest technology, all designed to bring engine manufacturing to life.

Budding politicians from an Erdington primary school spent the first day of term in London last week when they were given a guided tour of parliament by their MP, Jack Dromey. Year 6 pupils from Brookvale Primary School visited the Houses of Parliament as part of their topic on democracy and the British government. The group were greeted at Westminster Hall by Erdington MP Jack Dromey, who helped organise the visit.

We are delighted that the The Coleshill School has been graded Good in all areas by Ofsted.  The Inspection Team visited the school between 4th and 5th May 2016. Our previous Ofsted grading was Requires Improvement and this is the first time that the school has been graded ‘Good’ in over twenty years.  The school converted to being an academy in 2011 and joined the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP) in September 2015.  The grading of the school as ‘Good’ is testament to the hard work and dedication of both the whole school community and the wider support of the ATLP.
