Message from the Headmaster

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, I trust you will find all the information that you need here, however I would encourage any prospective parent and pupil to visit us and see first hand what makes Tettenhall College such an exceptional learning environment for your child.

Our mission at Tettenhall College is to ensure that every pupil achieves their personal best by providing an education that develops the whole person both in and beyond the classroom.  We are proud to be able to offer a truly global perspective with exceptional extra-curricular opportunities that complement rigorous academic standards. From rock climbing to engineering, business enterprise to dance, everyone will find their niche and grow in confidence; you will find me in the school's allotment on a Friday afternoon leading our gardening club!

Academic success is a major focus across the whole School, with high GCSE and A Level results consistently above national averages.  In 2018 over 50% of A Level grades were at A*, A or B. Whilst I am reticent to judge a school purely on academic results, I still consider our GCSE and A Level results a great achievement. Our pupils perform beyond expectations, leaving as well-rounded, confident young adults ready to face the challenges ahead.  Most years all pupil go on to study degrees and in 2018 over a third have gone to the UK's top Russell Group universities.

We have come a long way since our foundation over 150 years ago, yet the traditional values and the wonderful historic setting remain the same.  Please do get in touch, I would welcome the opportunity to show you around, only a visit will truly give you an appreciation of the warmth and special atmosphere here at 'TC'.
