What the school says...
At Solihull School, we pride ourselves on ensuring that all pupils realise their full potential. We are a community providing co-educational continuity from 3 to18, with three main aims; ambition, opportunity and community.
Our staff and pupils are ambitious and seek to maximise potential in one another and extend themselves beyond their immediate interests and perceived capabilities. Learning takes place in and out of the classroom, at home and abroad, and new opportunities are welcomed and embraced.
We have a Christian foundation, and welcome boys and girls of all faiths into a supportive and caring environment. We aim to prepare them for adult life as happy, charitable, confident and intelligent people and teach them the importance of winning with humility and losing with dignity.
The teaching at Solihull School is excellent and our examination results speak volumes about the progress Silhillians make in their studies.
We have excellent facilities with a brand new, state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre for September 2015. The School is situated on a 50-acre site, with various pitches for sport, an 800-seat theatre hall, swimming pool, and state-of-the-art music school.
There is something for everyone at Solihull; sport, music and drama are all strong and there are many more activities to keep pupils busy. Debating, Young Enterprise, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, photography, food technology, fencing and even skiing are all popular choices. The School also owns a cottage in Snowdonia and most pupils will visit the cottage at least once.
Our pupils achieve at the highest level in a caring and warm environment, where relationships between pupils and between pupils and staff are friendly, respectful and conducive to the fulfilment of every individuals potential.
In September 2019 Solihull School and Saint Martin’s School announced plans to merge bringing the two schools together to create a larger Solihull School, which will provide dedicated early years, infant, junior and senior facilities on two campuses. Solihull Senior School will be located on Warwick Road Campus and Solihull Preparatory School on Saint Martin’s Campus from September 2020. The merger legally completed on Monday 6 January 2020. ...Read more
