Due to heating issues we have had to close the school for pupils today (Thursday 2nd March). The Green Futures Trip will still occur and pupils on that trip should still attend school at 0830 as planned.  Currently Parents Evening is unaffected - we will update if this changes. 

Birmingham Rep Theatre

posted 28 Feb 2017, 13:26 by Jake Greenwood

On Friday 3rd March 2017, we're very lucky to have the Birmingham Repertory Theatre performing a new piece of work called "Stories to Tell in the Middle of The Night" by Francesca Millican-Slater.

"A live late night radio show for those that can't sleep, aren't asleep. Instead of records, this DJ is spinning stories that exist between dusk and morning. Small stories, odd, true, funny and familiar, reflecting the night hours themselves."

This free performance in the Main Hall starts at 4pm and should finish by about 5pm with a brief Q&A afterwards. The performance will be attended by an sizable portion of our Year 9s, Year 11 Drama students and students and staff from Earl High.

Also that day, a group of Year 9s  will be participating in a workshop led by Francesca, exploring creative writing and some of the themes from the play

Four Dwellings was delighted to receive this letter from the Birmingham Education Partnership recognising the hard work and achievement of the academy in our Progress 8 score being rated in the top 10% of schools nationally (one of only 10 schools in Birmingham to reach the top 10%) and in the top six schools in Birmingham for the difference we make to disadvantaged pupils.  We are really proud of all staff and pupils working together to make this happen!
