Our School Is Changing

Spring Hill High School is now operated by its own company, Spring Hill High School Ltd. The new Directors are Lee Baillie and Sheraine Reid-Ferguson; Sheraine Reid-Ferguson is also the school’s new proprietor and remains the Headteacher.

The school now operates from 4 sites instead of 5. These are Slade Road, Hunton Road, Orchard Road, and Wood End Lane.The sixth form provision has moved to Hunton Road and will later move to Wood End. Wood End is closed temporarily for refurbishment.

The school has established a Board of Governors, who will share responsibility for holding leaders to account. Members of the Board include: Barbara Scrivens as chair, Sheraine Reid-Ferguson, Lee Baillie and Paul Cornick. The school is looking to recruit more governors.

In June 2018 the school’s Ofsted rating changed from being consistently good to inadequate because the school was found to be noncompliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Since then, we have had an emergency inspection in November 2018, where it was recognised by Her Majesty Inspector (HMI) Catherine Crooks, that the school has taken appropriate measures to address areas of the independent school standards that were not met in the June 2018 inspections. The overall outcome from this inspection is that the school meets all the independent school standards that were checked on that day.

The school has also had two Quality Assurance visits in Autumn 2018. One was commissioned by the Birmingham Local Authority, and the second visit from a member of the Warwickshire commissioning team. Both local authorities were satisfied that the appropriate progress was being made in meeting the independent school standards.



The Battle Of Erdington

Spring Hill High School vs Queensbury

Spring Hill High School's first ever sports fixture. On Thursday the 12th of October, Spring Hill High School played a very hard match against Queensbury School. There were some outstanding players. Before the match started, there was a little pep talk by our fabulous coaches Michael Dinn and Dean James. Then at approximately 10am the match kicked off.

The game was very hard and very intense. At the start, both teams were scared and did not know where to go, but they came out of their shells thanks to our captain Mr GML who scored 6 amazing goals. He offered the team great support and he motivated the team as a successful captain. Well done GML! You are a trooper! A big well done to LW, who scored 1 amazing goal and to LW who scored a clear penalty. Well done! You made the team proud.

A big well done to Mr GML who was named the man of the match. Unfortunately Spring Hill High School lost the match 10-8, as they appeared tired towards the end. However a big well done to all the players, they really represented the school well. I would also like to say a big well done to our opponents. We challenged you and you rose to the challenge.

Training sessions will commence when school resumes, after half term to improve the players' fitness levels. Well done everyone. You made the school proud

Spring Hill High School strikes GOLD!

Spring Hill High School achieves GOLD Quality award for CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance)!

Spring Hill High School, in Erdington, has this week been recognised for its outstanding careers work. The school became only one of a very, very tiny number of institutions that have been awarded Gold Standard straight away for their first accreditation.

The nationally validated Quality Award from ‘Prospects’, the education, employment and skills company, is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance of careers guidance and how the school supports students to make decisions about their life after school.

Spring Hill High School is an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ school, continually working to improve the chances and opportunities of all the students. There is a statutory duty to ‘secure independent careers guidance’ for all students from year 8 onwards and the Government also recommends that all schools should be required to work towards a dedicated CEIAG Award which is nationally validated by Quality in Careers Standard. There are more than 1,100 schools and colleges already voluntarily working towards, or holding, a dedicated CEIAG Quality Award which can contribute to Ofsted inspection success.

Sheraine Reid-Ferguson, Headteacher at Spring Hill High School said: “We are thrilled to have achieved the Quality Award in CEIAG. At Spring Hill High School we recognise the important role school plays in helping students develop their knowledge, skills and experience so they can go out into the world and achieve personal success. This award has provided a flexible framework that enabled us to audit our work on careers and ensure our students are receiving advice, practical support and experience so they are prepared for the next stage of their education, employment, self employment or training.
