Holyhead School in Handsworth, Birmingham joined the RSA Family of Academies in September 2014.  The school has a long-standing reputation for ‘succeeding against the odds’ despite serving one of the most deprived electoral wards in the UK.

Holyhead became one of the country’s first Training Schools in 2002; a Specialist Business and Enterprise College in 2004, a Foundation School in 2006 and an 11-19 school in 2010 having established Sixth Form provision on site for the first time.  Holyhead converted to an Academy in August 2011.

National recognition has been shown to Holyhead’s Mathematics Department, who have been nominated for the TES National School Awards Maths team of the year.
