Saint Augustine's High School is a Catholic High School in Hunt End in the town of Redditch, Worcestershire, England. The school was opened in 1974. Saint Augustine's became a Science College in 2006[1] but lost this status in July 2013. The school converted to academy status on 1 July 2014.

The school is part of the three tier system, serving as the High School stage, teaching children from the ages of 13-18 (year 9 to year 13). In 2018, 82% of the Year 11 students achieved 5 or more standard passes at GCSE, with 30% of all GCSE results delivered grades 9-7, A*-A or equivalent. Sixth form students achieved a 100% pass rate at A level, with 28% of students gaining 3+ A*-B grades or equivalent[2]. A May 2019 Ofsted inspection rated the school as outstanding[3].

The school has a Maths Block named 'The Canterbury Suite'. The opening was attended by the Jacqui Smith, the former MP for Redditch and former Home Secretary.

St. Augustine's is the oldest continuously operating High School in Redditch, and the name has remained unchanged since it was opened in September 1974.

The majority of students come from St. Bede's Catholic Middle School in the Lodge Park area of Redditch. St. Bede's is the only Catholic Middle School in Redditch. Some students also come from Ridgeway Middle School, Church Hill Middle School, and Walkwood Middle School.
