Shenley Academy (formerly known as Shenley Court Specialist Arts College) is a mixed secondary school and sixth form located in the Weoley Castle area of southwest Birmingham. It first opened on 4 September 2009. The school's academy sponsor is E-ACT, a non-profit education foundation.[4]

Shenley Academy (formerly known as Shenley Court School) is located in Weoley Castle, Birmingham.

Shenley became an Academy in 2009, with many changes occurring in and around the school. One of these was its uniform; the blue and yellow that had been used previously, for over 40 years, was replaced by black and red uniform, accompanied by matching sports wear. The change to an academy also brought a large sum of money to the school, this ended up being used to construct a new building for the academy. The new building opened on 10 September 2012 following a 19-month build programme led by main contractor Lend Lease Construction (EMEA) Limited, formerly known as Bovis Lend Lease.

The sixth form provision is offered as part of Oaks Sixth Form College, a consortium of 7 secondary schools in South-West Birmingham.[5]
