Tettenhall College is an independent, co-educational day and boarding school situated in the old village of Tettenhall, some three miles to the west of Wolverhampton. The School stands in 33 acres of beautiful woodland and grounds, and offers a first-rate education to boys and girls between the ages of two and eighteen.
The school has small class sizes, first rate facilities in a fabulous location, dedicated teachers and excellent relationships between staff, pupils and parents. It is no surprise that our children leave as well rounded individuals with examination results far better than would be expected based on national averages, with happy memories of school and a thorough preparation for their future.
A modern ICT network spans every area of the school with all classrooms and subject areas connected to it in addition to the specialist ICT suites. A spacious library houses in excess of 12,000 volumes and provides access to other research tools and networked computers. Our modern purpose-built Science Faculty is named after Sir Arthur Harden, a former pupil who won a Nobel Prize for Chemistry.
Tettenhall Towers is home to our performing arts facilities with its superb fully refurbished nineteenth century theatre, and both practice and teaching rooms for music and drama. The school Chapel also has a fine Nicholson organ used for services and concerts. The Art School is very well equipped allowing pupils to try pottery, textiles, sculpture, printing, photography and computer-aided design in addition to drawing and painting.
We are very fortunate in having excellent sports facilities. Among these are a heated indoor swimming pool, a sports hall, cricket pavilion, fitness room, floodlit tennis and netball courts, rugby, football and hockey pitches and three cricket squar
Our teaching is undertaken by highly qualified professionals, all of whom are specialists in their individual subject areas. Pupils develop and prosper when they are enthused and challenged, and our team of skilful, enthusiastic and dedicated teachers inspire the greatest levels of understanding and thirst for knowledge.
Our pupils excel academically achieving superb results at GCSE level, enabling entry to the Sixth Form for A level study, as well as onward progression to a wide range of degree courses at leading universities across the UK and beyond. Our results demonstrate excellent ‘value added’ success: with most students performing far better than their baseline assessment predictions.
The curriculum is based around the study of academic subjects across four core Faculties; Arts and Humanities, Languages and Literature, Maths, Business and Technology, and Science. The faculty approach ensures that each subject area is not isolated and staff are able to share ideas and good practice from different perspectives, ensuring that students get the best possible learning experiences.
