Cockshut Hill School

Cockshut Hill is a large comprehensive secondary academy in East Birmingham . It is part of Summit Learning Trust and serves a cohort of just over 1,000 pupils from Years 7- 11.

Cockshut Hill is steeped in history and has been refined and renewed over time. This strong history forms part of our culture at CHS and we have proudly maintained the logo and its Latin slogan ‘Nihil nisi optimum’, which translates as ‘Nothing but the Best’.

56% of our learners are pupil premium, 20% are SEND, 34% EAL and 17% are disadvantaged. We are fortunate to have a community of learners from a wide range of backgrounds with over 35 Nationalities forming part of our community. Respect and ambition are at the heart of our vision and values here at Cockshut Hill.

Our site is large and we are fortunate to have lots of wide-open spaces and green space to benefit our school community.

Our students are exposed to a wide and varied curriculum. Our teachers have access to the latest research and valuable professional development offered through our Professional Learning Institute and opportunities and research from external providers like The National College and the Education Endowment Foundation.

About our school experience

Taking part in a school experience day provides you with an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into the day to day school life. Whether you are at the application stage, or preparing for interview, the time spent in school on this day will allow you to see great teaching and learning in action, and also give you the chance to talk to School Based Trainers, current trainees following our programme, and members of the South Birmingham SCITT team about the course and the year ahead. Combining lesson observations with workshops on the teacher training process will provide you with everything you need in taking the next step on your journey in becoming a teacher.
