From September 2019 Ounsdale High School will become Wombourne High School.
This is an exciting time for the school, which is really moving forward and seeing students achieve fantastic academic, sporting and musical success.
We have a new reception, a brand new 10 classroom teaching block will be opened in the 2019-2020 academic year, and other improvements to the site are planned. A new name for an exciting time in the school’s history, a unique time when a significant amount of funding has been spent on school improvements. Funding that has been made available to us because we are a member of a successful Multi Academy Trust
Although historic, Ounsdale is not a well-known area, and as the sole high school located within the wider area of Wombourne we are proud to be associated with the village, the change of name will reflect this.
Our students are at the heart of all we do, and we want the very best for them. Wombourne High School’s key values of hard work, positivity and kindness are epitomised in the way our students work and behave.
As Ounsdale High School becomes Wombourne High School we know that the students will continue to thrive and go from strength to strength.
Wombourne High School is part of the Invictus Education Trust. A trust that every day, in every way, puts the students first. Providing unique challenges for students to seize. Being part of the Invictus Trust has afforded students a variety of opportunities, such as sailing, golf, clay pigeon shooting, ballet with The Royal Ballet Company, musical performances at the Royal Albert Hall and a choir tour of Germany.
Last week we held a photo shoot for next years prospectus and students modelled the new uniform, throughout the day over 100 students wore the uniform and the feedback from them was excellent.
We ask for your continued support and positivity at this time, particularly in recognising and celebrating our student’s accomplishments.
