Welcome to The Shrubbery School and Nursery website.

It has been a busy year so far at The Shrubbery School with children enjoying sporting and academic success.

Please take the time to look at our news feed showing our children enjoying wide range of rich curriculum activities. A happy child is a learning child!

We welcome visits from prospective parents so that you can see our Junior School (7-11years) Infant School (4-7years) and Nursery Class (3-4 years) on a normal school day.

The Shrubbery follows the National Curriculum with children achieving excellent SATs results and a high percentage of children passing 11 plus examinations, moving on to grammar schools and independent education.

As a caring school with traditional values, The Shrubbery School provides positive learning experiences which will help your child develop a capacity for learning and aid their personal growth. We aim to instill confidence and a sense of achievement and worth in each of our pupils. At the same time we work for a community atmosphere of mutual respect and concern for others. We hold a set of values, each beginning with the letter ‘R’ known as the ‘Six Rs’ which promote both social and learning behaviours. We also respect the United Nations Rights of the Child and learn about the world far beyond the classroom.

Literacy and Numeracy are seen as the vital building blocks for the rest of our school curriculum and there is always something interesting and exciting going on in school, within our creative curriculum and in sporting and extra-curricular subjects. We want to inspire our children with a love of life and learning allowing them to explore, discover and have fun!  We encourage leadership and working together in our school in a range of areas both in and out of the classroom.

If you are thinking of applying for your child to join our school and nursery or would like further information, please look at the   ‘Contact us’ section of the website.

Our History

The Shrubbery School is the oldest co-educational independent school in Sutton Coldfield.

The School house itself dates back to 1857 originally one house built on land previously owned by Penns Hall , in 1881 two wings were added and the house was converted to two semi-detached homes, ‘The Ferns’ and ‘The Shrubbery’. 

The Walker family lived at ‘The Shrubbery’ until the Rankin family moved in during 1914 when Walmley was a very small village consisting of a few houses and ‘The Fox Inn’.
