Aston Fields Middle School is a co-educational Community School for pupils aged nine to thirteen. The school, which opened in 1969, is situated in south-east Bromsgrove and is one of four Middle Schools serving the town and its surrounding area. The school has five forms of entry. 150 pupils are admitted each year from the Feeder First Schools of Charford, Finstall, Stoke Prior, Hanbury and other schools in the local contributory area. Many parental preferences are also made from outside the catchment area. The majority of children, having attained their 13th birthday in the school year, normally transfer to South Bromsgrove High School, one of two High Schools in the town. New, purpose-built accommodation and a significant refurbishment programme has meant that Aston Fields Middle School is now one of the best equipped middle schools in Worcestershire with excellent specialist teaching facilities and an extensive library in addition to high quality classroom accommodation. Year 5 pupils benefit from a purpose-built classroom block adjacent to their own playground. Information Technology facilities have seen recent rapid expansion and, in addition to designated networked suites of computers within the school, pupils have access to PC’s, multimedia and Promethean white boards throughout their four years in the school. At Aston Fields Middle School we believe all members of our school family are part of a wider, international community. We aim to promote an ethos of tolerance, understanding, courtesy, co-operation, good manners and mutual respect through our established Character Education programme. Pupils are taught about the knightly virtues in Year 5 and over their four years with us they will explore character in more depth, looking at how we can build character and how this will enable them to become life long learners and follow their dreams. We have a history of partners in Finland, Czech Republic, Hungary and The Gambia. Pupils explore different cultures, both in Britain and the wider world, through events such as All Different: All Equal Day and Modern Britain Day. Physical Education, sport and the Arts are all strengths of the school. A fine gymnasium, large playing fields and music block support the pupils’ work in these areas of the curriculum. Rugby, football, hockey, netball, cricket, rounders, volleyball, basketball, tennis, athletics and many more unusual sports are all represented within the school year. There is a focus on participation and inclusion in all sporting and non-sporting activities, which supports our values and the development of character. Pupils are encouraged to respect the environment. Trees and gardens have been planted and litter prevention and recycling initiatives have been successfully introduced to benefit present and future pupils. A Jubilee Garden was created by the Eco committee to further enhance the school grounds and this has been further developed by our current Eco-STEM group. This will form the basis for our proposed partnership with the Royal Society and their Tomorrow’s Climate Scientist project. We encourage all pupils to contribute to the wider aspects of school life and to live out the school motto by “Striving for Excellence: Learning for Life” in all they do.
