“This is a very caring school where staff and students feel highly valued. This ethos is largely responsible for the good behaviour and the strong relationships that exist between staff and students in the school. One student captured the views of many in stating that, ‘Teachers are always prepared to go the extra mile in order to help us.’” (OFSTED 2011)

Tamworth Enterprise College is an 11-16 academy sponsored by the AET which provides an excellent educational service for its local community. Student's prior attainment covers the entire ability range and high levels of aspiration are encouraged to ensure all students achieve at and beyond their potential.  We are a forward thinking school which works extremely hard to provide the best opportunities for teaching and learning which have been recognised by inspectors as being of a good standard. The welfare of staff and students is paramount and the stability and cohesiveness of the staff supports the notion that Tamworth Enterprise College  puts people first. 

The catchment area draws from the Belgrave, Glascote and Stoneydelph wards located in the southern part of the town close to the M42.  Over the years, Tamworth has grown and developed into a thriving  town attracting, many big names in the retail and leisure industry and consqeuently, road, rail and leisure facilities in the town are excellent. 

The college has excellent links with feeder schools and is acknowledged for its specialism in Science and Mathematics. 

There is a strong emphasis on staff development. All NQT's and student teachers are given structured support led by a senior member of staff to ensure that a high quality programme of induction is delivered. Opportunities for non teaching staff to meet to discuss their work are a feature. Teaching staff meet in a number of groups: Faculty and House teams, Heads of Faculty/Department and Heads of House. Senior staff meet weekly.

A priority is given to fostering positive relationships and respect among all members of the school community. The vertical tutor group system which has been praised by OFSTED and all stakeholders mean that group tutors stay with tutor groups throughout a student’s life at the college. A good deal of time is spent on planning personal, social and health education, taught in different subject areas. A wide programme of extra curricular activities and visits is also a prominent feature.

The work of the Special Educational Needs Department is recognised as being of a high standard. We have achieved “Full Dyslexia Friendly Status” recognition and are now applying for “Enhanced Status” in this area.

The school operates a 30 period week, each period being 50 minutes in length. At KS4 significant improvements have been made by providing more choice. The options programme ensures that students get the best choice possible to enable them to successfully progress beyond KS4in their chosen career pathways.

The school offers a full programme of extra curricular opportunities across a wide range of activities which make use of our excellent facilities. All students are encouraged to participate and many staff choose to engage in running clubs in areas of their own interest.
