Our last Ofsted Inspection reported many strengths, including good academic support, leadership and the fact that all students are valued.

All students are treated as individuals for achieving their potential and gaining a sound foundation for the future.

At the centre of the College mission are six key values:

  • commitment
  • learning
  • partnership
  • respect
  • standards
  • trust

In association with our long-standing partnerships with the University of Worcester and Newman University, we are committed to increasing participation and progression routes to higher education for the local community. 

Our University Centre is an important step in extending pathways for students who would not otherwise be able to attain higher qualifications. It puts in place some outstanding facilities that allow students to tap into higher education study in the locality and utilise digital resources. 

Students in the second year of advanced programmes are able to embark on selected undergraduate units with partner universities to help prepare them for transition to higher education.

Halesowen College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and works in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.
