    About Gospel Oak School

    Gospel Oak School, formerly the RSA Academy serves the borough of Sandwell, but due to its geographical position students join us from Wolverhampton and Walsall. In 2017 the school joined the Central RSA Academies Trust and has been working closely and collaboratively across the trust to offer greater opportunities for all. Over the last 5 years the trust has grown in size and strength, from September 2021 the trust is now an academy approved sponsor in its own right and the RSA will no longer sponsor the trust, although we will continue to work closely with the RSA. This changing relationship has provided the trust and the school to rebrand ourselves, the trust will now be known as Central Region Schools Trust and the school; Gospel Oak School.

    The rebrand for the school has allowed us to reflect on the true heritage of the local community. The school is based in Gospel Oak and as a community we are very proud of our Black Country heritage, it is for this reason our new branding reflects the colours of the Black Country along with symbolic representation of the area, with the narrowboat which reflects the locality of the Gospel Oak canal basin, the oak tree for when the parish was so large the parishioners prayed under it once a month and the Black Country links to industry within the area.

    Arranging a visit to Gospel Oak School

    We will be holding visits to the school on Friday 17th September at 9.00am and Monday 20th September at 9.00am. If you would like to visit at one of these times then please contact Kerry Hampton, PA to the Principal on KHampton@gospeloakschool.co.uk or on 0121 556 1351.
