Established almost 100 years ago, Erdington Academy has a rich history rooted in the community it serves and has an ambition to become one of the leading schools in the West Midlands, indeed the country.

The school is a tolerant community that welcomes all and celebrates diversity.  We believe that every child can achieve their potential and we work hard to ensure that all our students will strive to be the best they can be.

As a result of these aspirations, our curriculum has an academic focus.  All students’ skills and students are taught how to develop their confidence as readers, writers, speakers and listeners from the moment they join the school.  Erdington Academy students are valued by employers because we foster resilience and confidence; we want our graduates to be successful not just in the results they will gain, but in how they present themselves and engage with others.  In short, we provide students with the “edge” to be successful, The Erdington Edge.

We believe there is dignity in hard work and effort.


We aim to be the best that we can be, in all that we do.
