We are a comprehensive school with students across the whole ability range.
We have a very good track record in terms of examination results with excellent Progress 8, Attainment 8 and VA scores. We are in a position of strength as a school, with our students successful across the range of groups and across the full range of subjects. Oldbury Wells School also has an established and flourishing Sixth Form.
We are located just 20 minutes from the West Midlands conurbation where we enjoy a small town location in Bridgnorth within easy reach of the Birmingham and Telford areas.
