The College enjoys outstanding links with schools, universities, training providers and businesses. This page details some of those links.


The College enrols students from all over the Birmingham and Solihull area, but there are a number of schools that we work especially closely with and they are known as partner schools. These schools are:

• Cockshut Hill Technology College (A Ninestiles Academy)
• Hall Green School
• Langley School
• Light Hall School
• Lode Heath School
• Lyndon School (A Ninestiles Academy)
• Ninestiles School, an Academy (A Ninestiles Academy)
• Yardleys Schools


We enrich our students’ learning experience with links to many universities, including inviting universities into College to give lectures and workshops, taking students on visits to the universities and even facilitating project work with select universities. The latter is often done through associations with Specialist Academies. Those universities that we enjoy particularly close links with include:

• Aston University (Business & Law)
• University of Birmingham (Economics, Politics & Sociology)
• Coventry University (Engineering)
• Keele University (Pre-Medical School & Shakespeare Academy)
• University of Leicester (Economics, Politics, Sociology, Humanities & Pre-Medical School)
• University of Nottingham (Chemistry)
• University of Oxford (Shakespeare Academy)
• University of South Wales (Media)
• University of Warwick (Psychology & Shakespeare Academy)
