Arrow Vale is a mixed 13-18 comprehensive situated in eastern Redditch. The school is set in an attractive setting and caters for 900 students with a Sixth Form of 150. We provide an excellent learning environment for our students and as a Sports College, for the wider community.
Arrow Vale is a happy place – our students tell us so. We want them to be happy so that they are able to use their talents and skills to achieve the potential that exists in all individuals. We want our students to experience a quality education which sets the highest standards and aspirations for all students. The ethos of the school centres on the core values of academic success, discipline, personal responsibility and self-respect.
The curriculum offered at Arrow Vale reflects the varied needs of our students. It is broad and offers challenges and opportunities from the most able student to those who benefit from a more work-centred or vocational approach. Support is offered to our most gifted students as well as those with special educational needs. Our curriculum is delivered by a team of highly specialised and motivated staff – both teaching and non-teaching. Teaching and learning are supported by strong pastoral care through form tutors and heads of year so that the individual needs of students are catered for.
We aim to work in partnership with parents, middle schools and the wider community to provide our students with the skills and experiences they need to become active contributors in the world beyond school.
