|Conway Road, Birmingham,B11 1NS |
Conway School is situated near the centre of Birmingham, just off the Stratford Road. We are very close to the famous Balti district of the city.
Conway has 436 pupils on roll, and a further 50 in the Nursery. We also have a very successful private Playgroup on site, taking 36 pupils aged 2/3. It is a very popular two-form entry school with waiting lists in all age groups.
The majority of our pupils (over 95%) have English as their second language. Most of our pupils are of the Islamic faith, but we also have a small number of Christians, Sikhs, and Hindus. Many of our families descend from Pakistan or Bangla Desh.
We have achieved the Investors in People Standard, the Basic Skills Quality Mark, and have recently been recommended for a Leading Aspect Award for our work with parents. We have very close links with our parents and the local community.
The staff and governors seek to provide the very best possible opportunities for our children, whilst ensuring they feel happy and safe in a secure and caring environment.
The school has an excellent long-term reputation. We were very pleased that the last OFSTED report highlighted the many positive aspects of the school. In recent years our results have shown a real upwards trend, and we are working on further improvement.
