Kings Rise Academy

Kings Rise Academy, is 3 miles to the North of Birmingham city centre and was founded in 1932 as a co-educational primary school. We work in close partnership with other organisations, the Elliot Foundation and our federated schools – Rough Hay and Croft Academy. With over three hundred pupils, a nursery unit, Full Day Care and a Breakfast Club, we are a vibrant multi-cultural school growing all the time. Under the leadership of Executive Principal Paul Edgerton and Principal Louise Noonan, all staff are committed to providing the best education for all pupils to ensure that they achieve well. We strive to ensure that deprivation is not a barrier to achieving and our results continue to reflect this. The school has worked hard developing links with pupils and families, providing a strong focus on community and parental engagement; parenting and adult literacy classes, parent support groups and multiple extra-curricular sports and creative groups. New this year is our Nurture Group Provision for pupils to support pupils to develop their social and emotional skills alongside their academic attainment.
