Welcome To Kingsbury School

As the new Headteacher of Kingsbury School & Sports College I am delighted to welcome you to our website. The website provides you with useful information about our school and will be updated over the coming months. The school is now being led by the Fairfax Multi-Academy in a school to school agreement in conjunction with Birmingham Local Authority. It is an exciting time for the school as it prepares to become a sponsored academy within the Fairfax group of schools.


At Kingsbury School we are committed to high standards of presentation, behaviour and achievement. A calm purposeful environment is the key to successful learning & achievement.

The school has unlimited potential and it is well supported by parents, local primary schools and the community.

Potential parents are welcome to visit the school at any time where they can meet the Headteacher and visit classrooms to see the school in action.

Please contact the Headteachers’s PA if you would like to organise a visit.
