I am delighted to welcome you to Smestow School. We provide a broad and balanced academic and vocational curriculum designed to support a real focus on our programme of personal development.
We are committed to ‘Building People’ with the skills and knowledge to become active and successful members of society. Everything we do in school is aimed at promoting a passion for lifelong learning and striving to uncover our students’ talents and interests. Our care and compassion are central to our ‘family’ atmosphere, which has served us well in our response to the current national challenges
Our values of Respect, Resilience, Honesty, Integrity and Accountability are the cornerstone of our personal development programme. Commitment to charity is at the heart of our community spirit, we believe in making a difference. From whole school projects to dedicated individuals, we celebrate the commitment to people less fortunate than ourselves and revel in the teamwork necessary to fund raise effectively
At Smestow, we pride ourselves on our history as a Sports College winning the Inclusive School of the Year Award for Sport from Wolverhampton’s Sports’ Awards last summer. Our students have a reputation of supporting local primary sports festivals to share their enthusiasm and ability in a wide variety of opportunities. This underpins our involvement in the Duke Of Edinburgh Award programme which is well established at the school. These are only a small part of the extra-curricular opportunities on offer, with music, art, foreign and UK travel experiences as well as leadership opportunities available. We are active participants in the Wolverhampton Youth Forum.
The newly formed UWMAT 6th Form is a partnership harnessing the best quality of sixth form provision Wolverhampton has to offer with high levels of vocational and academic progress. Guaranteed University of Wolverhampton progression routes on satisfactory completion of study emphasises our commitment to Higher Education. A number of staff have also continued their studies to demonstrate that education is a lifelong journey.
We are determined to provide an excellent educational experience for all students. We want the best for our students and the best for our community.
