Listen Up I'm Speaking
Three years ago students and staff, working through a Creative Partnership with a company called 'Infinite Wisdom' produced a DVD based on their views on the school. A new version of the video has now been produced, which is seen here.The video is a very good introduction to the school and its ethos.
The Government has issued guidelines for the information which needs to be available on each school's website. The AET have endorsed these requirements. For ease of access follow the links to each of these elements.

May I take this opportunity to ‘welcome’ you to Tamworth Enterprise College.
At Tamworth Enterprise College we aim to offer a first class education matched to the
individual skills and abilities of every student. In order to achieve this we seek to develop
and maintain highly effective relationships between staff, students and parents/carers at all times.
Clearly, successful academic outcomes are important. We are immensely proud that over recent years we have continued to achieve our best results ever. Up to 95% of our students achieve at least five good grade GCSEs (A* to C) and over half of our students successfully include both English and Mathematics in their results.However, we do not measure the success of our students by their examination results alone. We continually strive to develop your child’s self-confidence, enhance their self-belief and encourage their self-esteem so that they are equipped to build a happy and fulfilled life. Our expectations of ourselves, our students and of you as parents and carers are high in order to achieve what must be common aims. An excellent attitude, high standards of appearance, good manners, full attendance and punctuality are all paramount to achieving good discipline and academic success, together with emotional and physical well being.
We believe Tamworth Enterprise College is a thriving and vibrant school where all students, whatever their ability, will flourish, and comments made by visitors to our school often reflect this.
I welcome you taking the time to visit us in order to judge for yourself and I look forward to meeting you.
Simon Turney. Headteacher.

Literacy in the Classroom
Tamworth Enterprise College is committed to improving the literacy (reading, writing and comprehension) of all the students. We strongly advocate that all teachers are teachers of literacy. We are confident that developing the literacy skills of every pupil will support their learning across the curriculum, enhance their understanding of subject matter delivered and raise standards of teaching and learning within our school.

E Safety - Safety on the Internet
We are all very much aware of the dangers posed by unsafe practices on the Internet, particularly on social networking sites and in chatrooms. Perhaps the 'It wont happen to me' feeling makes us careless when using the Internet. Not only can the safety be personal (e.g. grooming etc), but our bank accounts and personal details can be hacked, if we are unclear about safe procedures with web sites visited and when opening e-mails. Mrs A Blout, Head of ICT in the College, has put together a section on internet safety for us all. This will be updated regularly. Visit the E Safety Home Page, which can be accessed through the Parents Home Page.
