Welcome to the Rural Enterprise Academy.
As the Principal of the new Rural Enterprise Academy, I would like to welcome you to our website. Here you will be able to find out everything that is happening at the Academy, including forthcoming events and the latest news, together with helpful information for learners and their parents/carers.
We have recently moved into the first phase of our new Academy building, staff and students are delighted with the quality of our environment. Next spring the second phase will be completed; this will include an additional suite of teaching rooms as well as a sports hall. Sited in the grounds of South Staffordshire College there can be few schools in the county that enjoy a more beautiful environment. Wherever possible students take advantage of the excellent facilities from the zoo to the land.
If you would like to know more please come to one of our open events where you can meet staff and current pupils.
Year 11 Parents’ Evening – Thursday 1st February
Parents/carers of Year 11 students are invited to attend a consultation evening, with their child, to discuss progress and the results from the mock exams with individual teachers on Thursday 1st February, 4.45 – 6.30 pm.
It would be helpful if you could advise your child of your preferred times and the names of the teachers you wish to consult as students are required to book appointments on your behalf.

For those parents/carers who were unable to attend the Aspirations Evening on 11th January, Mrs Cartwright will also be repeating her presentation at some point during the evening.
