Welcome to Pool Hayes Academy

As Principal of this successful, over subscribed academy, I look forward to working with all of you as we embark on a journey together. The partnership between the academy, parents, carers and students is vital to ensure all students in our academy reach their full potential and that they are well prepared for the next stage of their lives, whether that be in further education or employment. We are also proud to have a positive ethos and are thoroughly committed to our values of responsibility, aspiration, perseverance and success which permeate throughout our academy.

Our academy continues to go from strength to strength. We are proud to say that, based on most recent public examinations, we are one of the most improved secondary schools in Walsall.  This is a result of our relentless focus on the quality of education our students receive, coupled with the superb level of pastoral care we provide.  Whilst other schools and academies often comment on their struggles with recruiting quality, specialist staff, Pool Hayes has retained and recruited successfully.  From the start of this academic year, we have even more outstanding teachers who have further strengthened our remarkable team. As Principal, I am very fortunate that our academy attracts high calibre staff due to the happy, warm and hard working environment and the reputation of Pool Hayes Academy as a great place to learn and work in.

We continue to focus on developing responsible, highly skilled global citizens who will have a positive impact on our community now and in future years. The academy remains committed to maintaining its strong links already established with charitable organisations, local employers and higher education establishments; these will be developed further to ensure that all students can benefit from these positive partnerships. Pool Hayes Academy is tenacious in its overall aim to deliver an outstanding provision for our young people.

We hope that you find the information on this website of interest and that it tells you more about life at Pool Hayes Academy. We welcome a visit at any time, so please make the time to come in and see our academy at work.

Mr T McDowall (Principal)
