Welcome to the Grove Centre. We opened in Balsall Heath in September 2018. We offer a safe and engaging secondary school environment for our young people to thrive and achieve. We believe that children have the right to the best education in a nurturing and motivational environment. We cater solely for Key Stage 4 pupils and our curriculum is aimed at those who have the ability and motivation to succeed at GCSE. Our staff team has a wealth of knowledge and skills and all our pupils take English, Maths and Combined Science GCSEs. There is also a range of option subjects including RE, Sports Science, Art, Media Studies and Health and Social Care. Each of these provide a qualification at GCSE or equivalent. Pupils have a careers interview and support for the next stages of their education. We have high expectations for all and believe in offering our pupils the best chance to achieve success, now and post 16.
Term dates and our Uniform policy are under the ‘Parents/Carers’ menu at the top of the page.
Pupils may bring a PE kit to change into on their PE day.
Monday – Friday 8.30-2pm.
Our young people will be marked as on time if they arrive by 8.45.
Our register closes at 9.00 (as for the rest of City of Birmingham School).
Please call us on 0121 303 1276 to inform us of any absences.
If you or your child experience one or more symptoms of the Coronavirus (high temperature, new continuous cough, loss or change to sense of smell or taste) please follow the Government guidance and let us know.
