Starbank School

Welcome to Starbank School

 

Starbank has for many years been a very popular and successful primary school. In response to demand for places we are now becoming an all-through school from September 2014. As part of this development a brand new building will open on Hob Moor Road(by Sept 2016) which will replace our current Annex site.

This is a very exciting time for Starbank and for our community. We hope you will want to be part of this future. We want our school to provide an outstanding education for all children and need your help to achieve that.

Your child has great potential. Help him/her realise it by choosing Starbank.

We now have over 1200 pupils across three sites, close to the boundary between Bordesley Green and South Yardley. Arrangements for 2014-2015 are as follows:
  • Starbank Road site (B10 9LR) – this is the oldest and most established building where currently there is a large Nursery(all part-time) and classes from Reception up to and including Y4.By 2016 there will be classes from Nursery to Y6 on this site.
  • Bierton Road site (B25 8PY) – this has undergone extensive refurbishment since we moved in two years ago. It is a Listed Building which was originally built as a school in the 1930s but closed in the 1980s and was due to be demolished until early in 2012 when Starbank was asked to take it over to provide extra places. A Nursery (part-time and full-time) opens in September 2014 and there will also be classes from Reception to Y5.  By 2015 there will be classes from Nursery to Y6 on this site.
  • Hob Moor Road site (B10 9BT) – this annex site has been used by Starbank for the past 20 years approximately. It combines a stand alone brick built building with a number of large well equipped demountable classrooms. As in recent years there are children from Y4 – Y6 on this site but additionally from September 2014 we have 120 Y7 children based in a new set of portacabins which include specialist facilities for science, food technology and art and design.

When the new build further up Hob Moor Road is completed it will cater for classes from Reception to Y6 in the primary part of the school and from Y7 to Y11 in the secondary part. By 2016 therefore Starbank will have Nursery places at Starbank Road and Bierton Road and will have primary places from Reception to Y6 on all three sites with 180 places available in total, 60 at each site. It will be our intention to try and ensure families can have all their primary age children on one site, usually the closest to where they live. All children from any of our primary sites will automatically be entitled to attend our secondary department on Hob Moor Road.
