Redhill School is a coeducational secondary school with academy status, located in Stourbridge, West Midlands (formerly Worcestershire), England.[1]

It has no sixth form, similar to most schools in the Borough of Dudley, and all schools in Stourbridge. It is situated just east of the single-track Stourbridge Town Branch Line.

History[edit]

It was formed in September 1976, when Stourbridge Boys' Grammar School and Stourbridge Girls' High School in the town centre merged with Lye Secondary Modern School in the Lye area. These former schools were administered by Worcestershire Education Committee until 1974.

The new school was located entirely at the grammar and high school sites on RedHill near Stourbridge town centre on either side of Junction Road, with the Lye building being converted to a community centre.

The original building is known as ‘A block’ has been extensively refurbished and a number of other buildings added to the site. The Music Centre is known as ‘B block’, The Humanities, and Creative Technology learning areas are on the other side of Junction Road in ‘C block’. Next to this building is the purpose built Science centre, the Sports Development Centre, Sports Hall and Gym. The school now has a common room for the exclusive use of Year 11 pupils during break, lunchtime and before or after school. The common room is run by a committee of pupils.

The school gained specialist Language College status in 2003[2] before converting into an academy in July 2013.
