We are a thriving and oversubscribed academy with a well-established reputation for outcomes for students. In 2022, our Progress 8 of +0.84 made us the highest performing Academy in Sandwell again.

We are on a journey of rapid transformation toward outstanding and this is indicated in our latest Ofsted inspection in November 2021, where Ofsted validated the significant progress Bristnall Hall Academy has made beyond the realms of Good and not instead, has ‘sufficient evidence of improved performance to suggest that it might be judged Outstanding’.

If you want to inspire, aspire and achieve, come and join something special and make your mark.

We aim to provide our young people with the qualifications, skills and attributes to have a successful and happy life. Whilst other schools and academies often comment on their struggles with recruiting quality, specialist staff, Bristnall Hall has retained and recruited successfully. From this term, we have even more outstanding teachers who will further strengthen our remarkable team.
