School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Bloxwich Academy is larger than the average-sized sponsored academy. It is an all-through school, offering education for children, pupils and learners from the ages of three to 18.

The school opened in January 2012. It was formerly known as the Mirus Academy and sponsored by the Walsall College Academy Trust. It is now sponsored by the Matrix Academy Trust.

The executive headteacher joined the school in May 2015. The current local governing body and the Chair of the Governing Body have been in place since this time.

Leaders from other academies in the Matrix Academy Trust, several of whom are from the Barr Beacon School, support the school in the secondary phase.

A number of staff have submitted their resignations. Several new appointments, including a new head of the mathematics department, will take up post in January 2016. A substantive headteacher has also been appointed. He will also start in January 2016.

The large majority of pupils and pupils are White British.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is above average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, who are those eligible for support from the pupil premium, is much higher than average.

There are currently three pupils attending classes away from the school for all of the week and five attending classes for part of the week. The institutions providing these pupils with alternative and work-related courses are The Vine Trust, The Shepwell Centre, Alpha Hair and the MAP project.
