Seek for that which is good, that which is right, that which is true


A Welcome Message from our Head of School

Q3 Academy Tipton in Sandwell is a large, vibrant and diverse school for children aged 11 to 19. We are proud of our very successful Sixth Form, the impact of our student advocates and our rapid improvements over recent years.

We are completely dedicated to equipping all our students with the tools to live their lives to the full: to realise their potential, to thrive in the world of work and to make a positive contribution to the local, national and international community.

What makes us unique is that we know not everyone can make the difference that we do – day in and day out. We have high ambitions and aspirations for our community as well as uncompromising standards. We are driven by shared values; of fighting for equality, diversity, inclusion and belonging.

Our mission is support our students to live life to the full in pursuit of what is good, right and true.

Ms K Featherstone, Head of School
