‘a love of learning and life in a caring and Christian community’
Welcome to the website of the Federation of St Alphege Church of England Schools in Solihull. Our Federation comprises St Alphege C of E Infant and Nursery School and St Alphege C of E Junior School. I have had the privilege of being the Executive Head teacher of both schools since April 2017. Before that I was the head teacher of an outstanding primary school in Warwickshire for 12 years. I have also been a National Leader of Education for 5 years.
Our schools are exciting places of learning where excellence and fun go hand in hand. In 2018 we were delighted that St Alphege C of E Junior School made the Sunday Times list of top 250 primary schools. It was the only school in Solihull to achieve this. Parents tell us that their children love coming to school and they enthuse about the many wide-ranging opportunities available to them. We boast musical, sporting and drama successes as well as excellent academic results. Underpinning all that the schools do are our values which permeate all aspects of life across the age range.
We benefit enormously from our supportive and active parent/teacher group, The Friends of St Alphege Schools, which generates funding to enhance resources across both sites. Our governing body provides challenge as well as support, expertise and guidance. Our links with the church and the community ensure that the schools maintain a high profile locally. We engage in many varied out of school events and activities and enjoy the opportunities presented. At both schools we offer before and after-school care, details of which are available via the school offices.
“St Alphege Infants sustains an excellent learning environment for its pupils, who are proud to belong, feel valued and achieve highly. This is because the school strives to be an inclusive, happy and family community, rooted in the Christian faith. More importantly, there is a strong desire to live out the school’s chosen Christian values.” SIAMS Report
“St Alphege Juniors provides an excellent learning environment where pupils are proud to belong. This inclusive, cohesive community where church and school communities are integral and seamless demonstrates Christian love and service and is much loved by its pupils and much appreciated by its parent body.” SIAS Report
