About the school

Kettlebrook Short Stay School is a Pupil Referral Unit that supports the learning of students who reside in the Tamworth area. It is a Staffordshire Local Authority school which works in close partnership with the schools and the various alternative providers in the town. It is currently a single site school based in the area of Kettlebrook in Tamworth. The school has been here at least 10 years and Mrs K Rogers has been Headteacher since September 2009 & Mrs Jefferson since Sept 2023 as Head of School. We have very good facilities although on a small scale. The classes are small to enable each student to make quick and rapid learning progress in their social and academic studies.

We offer a broad, balanced and flexible academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to all our students and we ensure that they are fully included in all aspects of school life and into their Post 16 plans. We believe that everyone has a right to equal opportunities. We have a positive culture and ethos that all students, adults and families should feel welcome and should have an equal chance to benefit from our school and everything that it provides – safeguarding for all. We are committed to giving all or our students every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards including those with diverse needs.

We can only accept students on a referral basis from a Staffordshire Local Authority professional worker or from one of our District Inclusion Partnership (DIP) schools:

  • Wilnecote High School
  • Tamworth Enterprise College (Belgrave campus)
  • Landau Forte QEMs
  • Landau Forte Academy, Amington
  • The Rawlett School – An AET Academy
  • Two Rivers School
