An altogether better place to learn


Shireland Collegiate Academy is a large inner city secondary school in Smethwick, Sandwell in the West Midlands.

A school where students are happy and achieve well beyond their potential

Welcome to Shireland Collegiate Academy

I want a school where students are happy and achieve well above their potential, somewhere that they feel valued and important. I want to develop their awareness of their own health and wellbeing, physically and mentally. Our students should be ambitious for themselves and others and feel that they are capable of achieving their ambitions. We should develop students with a sense of pride in the Academy, who want to be involved in all aspects of academy life. Students who believe that they can and will improve their skills, knowledge, abilities and life chances through the practise of hard work.
