Parkway is a KS4 teaching centre for pupils who have medical needs; primarily social, emotional and mental health needs and some who have physical disabilities.


The learning pathways allow tailoring to individual pupils abilities, interests and needs, offering pupils opportunity to re-engage with education through the national GCSE core subjects in conjunction with a range of other qualifications e.g. BTEC and applied learning.  Additionally pupils will participate in a life skills and resilience program.



Pupils are supported to catch-up and progress based on KS2 results and robust baseline testing thus aiming to reduce the impact of their medical conditions on their educational outcomes.

Parkway provision seeks to build pupil resilience so that the pupils are able to transition back to mainstream or onto post-16 provision following successful completion and attainment at KS4.




We believe that every child has the right to a high quality educational experience and we work hard to ensure that we provide access to the best possible teaching.We strive to implement flexible and personalised approaches to make sure our pupils can engage with school, develop independence and resilience and, above all, enjoy themselves and thrive during their time here.

Part of Parkway provision seeks to accommodate pupils who require extra support in the home to re-engage with education within a teaching centre.  This provision is offered only as a last resort following pursuit of all other possible engagement and teaching provision offers.


Any referral of this nature will only be accepted after consideration and agreement by the Birmingham Sharing Panel which consists of core representatives from Birmingham City Council, Forward Thinking Birmingham, Education Psychology and James Brindley School.

















We know that educational visits can enrich learning, build independent skills, raise self-esteem and confidence, increase participation and raise levels of achievement. Parkway is located near to the heart of the city and is close to many local attractions. We teach young people about the areas around them and expose them to the wide range of cultural opportunities that Birmingham has to offer. Visits in the Autumn term (2015) have included a Year 11 visit to see Swan Lake at the Hippodrome, a Year 10 visit to Café Rouge and a KS3 visit to the Black Country Museum. We also offer short residential visits for KS3 and KS4 pupils in the summer term.

Our School History

James Brindley School Administration Centre Birmingham

We teach across 11 sites including teaching centres and hospitals in Birmingham. We also provide support for children finding it difficult to access education outside of the home, due to both physical or mental health related reasons. We find children and young people respond best when they feel comfortable in their surroundings, which is why staff work hard to ensure that every pupil in our care receives the best possible education in a safe, stimulating and supportive environment.
