The King Edward VI Foundation Birmingham has announced that Lordswood Girls’ School will be joining the organisation in September.

The school’s transfer has received approval from the West Midlands Regional Advisory Board.

Headteacher Kerry Cooney said: “I am very excited to be joining the King Edward VI Foundation and all it stands for.

“The quality of Lordswood Girls’ lies in the richness of its aspirations, the commitment of its learners and the quality of the relationships within and beyond the school building.

“Through working with other schools in the Foundation, we look forward to further developing connections and partnerships around the City of Birmingham.”

Jodh Dhesi, chief executive officer for the King Edward VI Foundation, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming another comprehensive school to join us on our mission to make Birmingham the best place to be educated in the UK. Lordswood Girls’ School is an excellent school providing an effective, rounded education and delivering strong results.

“In joining the King Edward VI Foundation, the school will build on its strengths, whilst continuing to meet the needs of the local community and support all children regardless of ability.”

“We look forward to working closely with staff at Lordswood Girls’ School and welcoming them into the King Edward VI Foundation Birmingham.”
