King's Norton Boys' School is a secondary school for around 750 pupils aged 11 to 18 of which approximately 130 attend the sixth form centre. It is located in Northfield Road in Kings Norton within the formal district of Northfield near the centre of the city of Birmingham, England.[1] It is situated east of the A441, just north of the B4121 in Cotteridge.

History[edit]

It was founded as a boys' grammar school in the reign of King Edward VI, circa 1550. It was refounded in 1912. In the 1960s, when administered by the City of Birmingham Education Committee, it had around 600 boys.[citation needed] It became a boy's comprehensive school in 1975. The grammar school's five houses in the 1960s were, Greves, Jervoise, Lyttleton, Middlemore & Mortimer. They amalgamated to only four houses in the 1980/90s, James, Weaver, Reynolds and Wright.

Curriculum[edit]

Pupils follow a broad curriculum that includes National Curriculum core subjects to GCSE and A-Level. The school was designated a Sixth Form Specialist Science College in 2004,[2] and a collaborative scheme exists for sharing 6th form resources with Kings Norton Girls' School.

An October 2008 Ofsted report classed, the school with a Grade 3 (satisfactory).[1]
