The Rural Enteprise Academy to admit students to Year 7 from September 2021

The Rural Enterprise Academy is a truly unique secondary school rooted in a safe rural setting just south of Penkridge, Staffordshire. We engage in a full and challenging environmentally focussed curriculum across key stages 3 and 4 and from September 2021 we are delighted to be admitting students into Year 7.

Our learners study a broad and balanced curriculum, based upon the national curriculum, but with a specific environmental focus throughout. They are able to study through a blend of indoor and outdoor learning across our specialist campus with access to fantastic facilities such as a fishery, horticulture facilities and equine centre. We offer a wide range of qualifications at BTEC and GSCE backed up by a comprehensive careers guidance programme.

In September 2021 we will be taking a cohort of 60 students at Year 7 who will stay with us for their secondary education to Year 11. From this point many students will choose to join our Academy Trust’s sixth form provision based at Wolgarston High School or move into specialist learning or apprenticeships at college.

We will be running a series of live virtual tours from September with a chance to see the school as it really is, ask questions, meet staff, students and alumni and explore what makes The Rural Enterprise Academy truly unique. These tours, that will take place during the school day, will be open to parents and families but also to primary schools.
