The Wilnecote School is situated South East of Tamworth, near to the Warwickshire border.

It is a very exciting time to be part of The Wilnecote School learning community.

On 1st September 2016 we joined the Community Academies Trust (CAT), a successful group of schools with an excellent reputation that includes The Polesworth School. (If you want to know more about the CAT please visit the website

In June 2019 an Ofsted inspection rated leadership and management, behaviour and personal development and welfare as good and noted that ‘the school is improving in all areas with rapid improvement evident in many areas’. Inspectors noted that due to ‘determined strategic leadership’; ‘behaviour is good’, ‘outcomes improved considerably in all subjects in 2018’ and ‘pastoral care and support for pupils are a strength of the school’.

We have introduced a number of strategies that are helping us to ‘ensure excellence’ and achieve the vision and aspirations we have for the young people at our school.

Our school is a genuine community school. The majority of young people in the area join our school but students from across the town also come here. We are proud to be a part of the family of schools that is the Community Academies. We normally have a thriving and dynamic community programme in the evenings and at weekends, led and managed directly by the school, with a wide range of sporting, leisure, wellbeing and cultural activities.
