• Inspiring students to be the very best they can be–Oundale Vision 2017

  • Talented, specialist teaching to unlock the potential of every child–Ounsdale Vision 2017

  • A wealth of opportunities to enjoy learning and be successful–Ounsdale Vision 2017

At Ounsdale High School students are at the centre of everything that we do and we aim to give them the self-belief and opportunity to achieve even more than they think is possible. We encourage our students to be ambitious and empowered young people who are happy and committed to being the best that they can be.

We are proud of our students and visitors to the school frequently comment on their confident, friendly approach and their enjoyment of learning. Our academic standards are high and we recognise the importance of good examination results for our students’ future success. However, we know that education is not just about examination results and we offer an enriched curriculum that enables each child to develop their personal and employability skills through visits, competitions, clubs and memorable learning experiences.

As a founder member of the Invictus Education Multi-Academy Trust, Ounsdale High School is part of a carefully planned collaboration between six self-selecting, highly successful schools. Within the Trust each school retains its own separate identity, but all members are totally committed to working together to ensure that each of our students receives the best possible education. Through combining our efforts, we have extended and enriched the opportunities available in order to give our students access to the best possible outcomes in terms of both examination results and wider educational experiences.

We are committed to continually improving the learning environment for our students and after submitting a bid earlier this year to the Education Funding Agency, Ounsdale has been awarded just under £3 million to rebuild the teaching block. We are very excited about this opportunity to transform the appearance of the school and further details, including impressions of what the building might look like, will be available on Open Evening.

We welcome applications from students within and outside of our catchment area, particularly those living in Dudley and Wolverhampton. Admissions are dealt with via the Staffordshire School Admissions Service and details of how to apply for a place can be found on our website (www.ounsdale.co.uk). Parents who wish to enquire about a place at other times during the year should contact the school directly.

Choosing the right secondary school is one of the most important decisions that you will make for your child and I hope that you will visit Ounsdale High School to see the exceptional opportunities we offer.
