About Us


Shenstone Lodge is a Sandwell MBC 'split-site', part residential school supporting and educating students who present with Social, Emotional and/or  Mental Health needs.
The school secured a ‘GOOD’ rating in it’s last educational Ofsted inspection in November 2013.
The residential provision is inspected by Ofsted annually and received ‘GOOD’ in December 2015.
The Shenstone Lodge site is based just outside of Shenstone village, near Lichfield in Staffordshire and currently supports students from Y1 toY7.
There is a residential provision on  this site which accommodates up to 12 students overnight between Monday and Thursday during term time.
The Brades Lodge site is a day school situated in Tividale, Oldbury and supports students from Y7 to Y11.
The school is funded across the two sites for a total of 65 students.

Students at both Shenstone Lodge School sites have access to:

  • A curriculum with a strong focus on developing core academic skills, using a range of interventions to improve reading, writing and maths.
  • A supportive and knowledgeable staff group
  • A wide range of enrichment opportunities to develop self-management skills, build self-esteem and promote aspiration.  

Additional Special Educational Need Support

As a special school all students benefit from small class sizes, high levels of support and well resourced subjects.
If your child is not making expected progress we will:
  • Meet with parents and carers to discuss next steps
  • Identify a suitable academic or behavioural intervention and measure the impact over a defined period of time
  • Liaise with appropriate professionals (eg. Educational Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapist etc) for further advice and implement suggested plans as appropriate against set time limits.

Additional Information

Both sites offer a range of curriculum enrichment opportunities both during and after school and run rewards systems which recognise and celebrate students' achievement.
