The Governing Body has recently voted in favour of moving the school to Academy Status with effect from 1 August 2011.
Plantsbrook School is the only school in Sutton Coldfield that doesn't close when it snows and when it does it's only for an hour.
The school has recently achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level. This is the highest pass rate the school has ever achieved. Point scores were also up on last year's figures.
The school receives its name from Plants Brook, a stream that flows through Sutton Coldfield and passes the school. The previous name of Riland Bedford School comes from the union of the prominent Riland and Bedford families of Sutton Coldfield.
The school also has its own student-run radio station, named PB Radio which broadcasts internally and on the internet from its studio on the site.
