Important Update – Parents Evening and Transition Days Cancelled.
Unfortunately the Parents Evening (June 17th) and Transition days (July 1st and 2nd) have had to be cancelled due to government and DFE guidelines on social distancing. We are hopeful of arranging a “Meet the College/Form Tutor Evening” in the first half term back to meet you all personally. When this is possible and safe to do we will let you know.

FAQs for Year 6 Parents/Carers
The 1st September 2018 saw the former CTC Kingshurst Academy become a fully-fledged member of the Tudor Grange Academies Trust. Previously the Principal at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull and a current National Lead in Education (NLE), I have worked within the ‘Trust’ for the last six years. I am fortunate to be able to draw on resources, expertise and a wealth of experience in school improvement and I look forward to seeing the impact at Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst over the coming years.
Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst is a thriving, mixed comprehensive school and sixth form of over 1380 students with outstanding facilities across every department area. All staff are committed to see Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst become the school of absolute choice within North Solihull. There is a passion and enthusiasm to create and promote positive learning environments for all students, regardless of background or experience. Embedding quality first teaching is at the heart of our school improvement and we actively promote key ‘Learning Habits’ across the academy, where students are: hardworking; inquisitive and resilient, whilst displaying the ‘Character Habits’ of being: respectful; responsible and aspirational. All underpinned by the Tudor values; Tolerance; Unity; Democracy; Opportunity; and Respect.
I consider it a great privilege to be able to work within this community, knowing that I am going to enjoy the interactions with yourselves as I see you grow in confidence and develop an open minded approach in tackling the everyday issues that we face in society today. All staff are committed to ensuring academic pathways are clear, whilst creating an environment where you feel safe and happy, and where mental well-being is a high priority. I welcome you to explore our website and hope this will provide you with a wider insight into Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst, and the provision on offer.
Thank you once again for choosing us as your school and please be safe and stay positive about the future.
A Meet The Tutor Evening is also planned for early on in the first half term so you can meet their new form tutor and discuss their start at the academy.
An additional Transition Evening is also planned for more vulnerable students. The aim of this is to meet with their new key staff and to view and discuss the additional support and guidance they can access. A letter will be sent at a later time to confirm the time and date of this for those identified students.
