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 student 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 Good rating in January 2020 reflects our relentless drive for improving the quality of the experience we offer students.
At The Earls High School we believe that people really do matter the most! Our school is made a very special place by the students and staff who come here together to learn. Our key values of excellence, care and partnership can be seen running through everything that we do. We challenge students and staff to achieve excellence every day so that they fulfil their potential. Students and staff are successful because as they strive for excellence they feel cared for and supported to be their best. As a school we cannot do this alone, so the partnerships between staff and parents, between students and staff and between the staff are built carefully so that they form a firm foundation on which to build aspiration.
One main cause of our success is our drive to appoint the very best staff in all areas and at all levels who demonstrate enthusiasm for their area of expertise, passion to help develop and nurture the whole child and a commitment to continual self-improvement.
