School profile

The Earls High School

The parents of Halesowen have been sending their children to The Earls High School for well over three hundred and sixty years.

We started as a small grammar school and the proud traditions of high standards in behaviour and high expectations of academic progress have stayed with us in the school’s present form as a thriving, innovative comprehensive school. At The Earls High School we believe that people really do matter the most; our school is made a very special place by the students and staff who come here together to learn.

The school is an 11-16 mixed academy school with approximately 1200 pupils.
