George Salter Academy is a coeducational 11-16 secondary school with academy status situated in West Bromwich, West Midlands, England. There are currently around 914 pupils on roll. Almost 50% of its pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds representing over 20 nationalities, mostly from within the Indian Sub-Continent and the Caribbean.
The school has academy status under the sponsorship of the Ormiston Academies Trust. Since this status was gained in September 2007 , GCSE exam results have improved substantially. In 2009, 39% of GCSE students gained five or more GCSEs at grades A*-C, placing it as the third highest ranking secondary school in Sandwell.
The school originally opened in 1932 as a secondary modern school for children aged 11 and upwards, replacing a 19th-century senior school in the Great Bridge district just over West Bromwich's border in Tipton.
