The Earls High School is a 1200 student, 11-16 Academy in the Borough of Dudley. It became a convertor Academy in January 2012 and one of the founding members of the Stour Vale Academy Trust (SVAT) alongside Redhill School, Stourbridge and Olive Hill Primary School in Spring 2017. Founded in 1652, the school has a long and distinguished history of service to the township of Halesowen. We serve a diverse community with significant areas of affluence alongside pockets of deprivation within the Dudley Borough as well as nearby Sandwell and Birmingham. Our school community is genuinely comprehensive in social, cultural and academic terms. Currently 21% of our students are eligible for free school meals, 3% speak English as a second language and 7% are identified as having special educational needs. We aim to achieve KS4 results well above the national average and with significant added value. The last three years have shown significant improvement in this goal with results in Summer 2017 and 2018 showing that students made significantly more progress than would have been expected of them. We are committed to our comprehensive status and to achieving excellence for all of our students. As part of this commitment we make extensive use of mixed ability teaching strategies; we believe this to be a key driver in raising studWent attainment and supporting high student expectations. This ethos is a key reason behind our heavy oversubscription and the active support we receive from parents. Our Ofsted Outstanding rating from October 2011 reflects our relentless drive for improving the quality of the experience we offer students.
