from Damien Kearns, Principal
It is my pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to you and I hope that you will find all the necessary information that you require about our school and our unique approach to education. The High School opened in September 2012 and we have now reached the stage in our development where we have 550 pupils in years 7-11. Our sixth form largely comprises our own students, though we do also benefit from students joining our sixth form from other schools. In total, therefore, we have approximately 660 pupils that benefit from our virtues-led approach to education that nurtures both the minds and hearts of our pupils.
A big Thank You to Mr Ansar from the University of Birmingham, for hosting our Year 12s on a University information day. The day was an eye opening insight for our students, they received fantastic impartial information on how to research Universities, advice on choosing subjects and tips on how to make a successful application and personal statement, avoiding cliches and common mistakes. It was an inspiring day and a special opportunity for our students to receive first hand knowledge of what Universities, such the University of Birmingham are looking for.Thank you also to the University ambassadors for their input, support and tour the of the campus.

NPSB Year 6 learned the effects The Blitz had on the city of Coventry, especially the cathedral, and what it was like to live during the war. They had the opportunity to discover The Knife Angel, the Unity Chapel and took part in the Litany of Reconciliation. #peace @CovCRM https://t.co/aJvtElU4VC
