Welcome to the Tudor Grange Academy website. Now into our 7th year of operation, Tudor Grange is firmly putting itself on the map of great schools in the county. The secret to our success is strong traditional values mixed with innovative teaching and learning. The family atmosphere is welcoming and caring and we value the constant support from our parents, carers and Governors.
Our focus on developing a ‘Growth Mindset’ encourages students to see mistakes as a learning opportunity. This will lead to greater confidence, knowledge, opportunities and ultimately the freedom to be who they want to be. Staff create an environment where students feel safe to learn and re-learn. We want students to grow into adults who can be resilient, think independently and strategically; and be happy and healthy. We are all part of a team of devoted people whose every aim is to make this a world class institution and who want each child, no matter what their starting point or background to have every opportunity to succeed in their lives.
Tudor Grange Academy Worcester is a mixed, 11-18 comprehensive school with a capacity to serve 1100 students, including a sixth form of 200 students. 62% of students left the academy in 2015 with 5A*-C including English and maths. The students were absolutely delighted with their results and we are proud of every one of them. Although our published figure will be 54% A*-C including English and Maths, we know that our strategy of early entry supported progress for a key group of students and this will always be our priority. 81% of all students made the expected progress in maths and 79% in English. Tolerance, Unity, Democracy, Opportunity and Respect: The Tudor Values are at the heart of everything we do here and whilst exam results are very important the academy offers a curriculum that develops the whole child. Our school has developed an excellent reputation locally for its academic achievement, standards of behaviour and caring atmosphere, and is now over-subscribed.
In January 2013, students and staff moved into first class facilities and so we now enjoy a sophisticated, innovative environment and IT provision second to none. Our focus on high standards of behaviour, and achievement and our caring atmosphere enables us to develop our provision so we can continue to improve and grow. We are well supported by the Tudor Grange Academies Trust and students benefit from the close working relationships staff have with their colleagues at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull and Tudor Grange Academy Redditch. With my dedicated team of staff we will maintain our distinct brand of blending the best of tradition and innovation.
Here’s to a great year
Mrs S Roach, Principal
