Four Dwellings Academy (formerly Four Dwellings High School) is a coeducational secondary school with academy status, located in the Quinton area of Birmingham, England. It opened in 1940 on Quinton Road West.[1] The old Upper School building opened in 1954 on Dwellings Lane, originally as the Four Dwellings Girls School, with the boys school being situated in the older buildings. The school went co-educational in 1970.[2] The school held specialist Science College status before converting to academy status in March 2013.

The academy is now situated solely on the old girls school building and has approximately 450 pupils.

The current principal is Becky Elcocks. The school is sponsored by the Academies Enterprise Trust. In 2016, the academy achieved its highest ever GCSE exam results and was rated as the best school for pupil progress in the Academies Enterprise Trust chain. The academy has a 3G football pitch funded by the Football Foundation which is used by professional and grass roots football teams
