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.
The Rural Enterprise Academy is currently consulting on a proposal to become part of the Penk Valley Multi Academy Trust. Details of the proposal, including how interested parties can make representations, can be found by following this link:
