Holyhead is a school where staff, parents/carers, students and governors work together to provide Handsworth with a school that the community can take pride in. We all share an unshakeable belief in everyone’s capacity to learn. Our achievements in the past ten years have been exceptional and we continue to work hard to develop Holyhead as a ‘learning community’ where everyone is ‘engaged, educated and enabled’ and helped to reach their full potential. Our practice is dedicated to encouraging ‘learning without limits’.Read more: Welcome to Holyhead

Holyhead has been selected to become one of three National Teaching Schools within the RSA Academies' Teaching School Alliance.
On 16th September 2014, the RSA Family of Academies launched their Year 8 Leadership Programme (RSA8) at the RSA Academy in Tipton.
RSA8 is a bespoke programme designed for the RSA Family of Academies, to include the citizenship ethos of the RSA. The programme includes a series of workshops taking place across the Family with reciprocal visits with 10 students from each of the Academies. The workshops will run in conjunction with RSA Fellows who wish to get involved with the young people within the RSA Family.
The first of these days took place at the RSA Academy in Tipton, with fellow Matthew Green from Policyworks who introduced the programme by getting the students to reflect on 'What makes a good leader' and the importance of knowing 'The bigger picture,' he spoke about his experiences as a leader. Students then reflected on the session and wrote about what they had learnt about Leadership.Read more: Year 8 team of students working with the RSA at Tipton
