Our School: About Us

About our school

Mainstream schooling doesn't work for everyone. At West Midlands Education & Skills, we understand the needs of pupils with learning, behavioural and social difficulties, whilst recognising that every pupil is an individual - and treating them as such!

We provide the support our students need to flourish and succeed.


Please note, we take on referrals from local authorities. If you do wish to arrange your own self-referral, you will need to pay for this independently.
