We warmly invite prospective parents to join us at our upcoming open evenings on Friday 30th September 2016 & Wednesday 5th October 2016. For more information, visit our 'Joining us in Year 7' admissions page.

Welcome to our School

It is a great privilege to have been appointed as the first Principal of the University of Birmingham School and I hope that you will be as excited as I am about our future as you find out more about our plans.

I was the first in our family to go University and, inspired by my own wonderful teachers, I have enjoyed a long career in some of the country’s best schools. I always said it would have to be something really special to make me move – and this school is just that.

We are delighted to have welcomed our first cohorts of Year 7 pupils, Sixth Form students and teachers because, as the first and only secondary University Training School, we are creating history.

At the University of Birmingham School we aim to raise our students’ aspirations and to maximise their potential by accessing the widest possible range of educational opportunities. We will do this by offering, in an extended school day, a broad and balanced academic curriculum, by supporting the development of well-rounded people of strong character in a diverse and truly comprehensive student body, who will have access to world-class facilities, resources and expertise through close links with the University community.

We look forward to you joining us in 2016 and beyond.

Mike Roden
Principal, University of Birmingham School
