‘This school is a highly inclusive and united community where all are welcome. Leaders at all levels, teachers and support staff have high aspirations for pupils’ Ofsted 2017

Four Dwellings Academy is a community where inspirational teaching, self-evaluation and self-improvement are evident from the moment you enter our school. 

Our students are diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff.  We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school.  We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude.  We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are proud to serve the communities around Quinton in Birmingham and we are within easy commute from Birmingham city centre. Ofsted judged us as a ‘good academy’ in May 2017 with staff confirming that the school is ‘well led and managed’.

In 2017 we celebrated a Progress 8 score of +0.22. We want Four Dwellings to lead the way in teaching excellence and for all our staff and students to develop their maximum potential. Get on board and make a real difference to our children and to your career.

We are keen to enhance teaching capacity and teaching standards both in the Academy and in Birmingham. We work with all teacher training routes in the area with huge success.
