Ninestiles School became an academy in 2011. Following this, Ninestiles Academy Trust was set up in 2012 and now has 7 schools and a 6th form college in its family. Ninestiles became a teaching school in the second cohort of teaching schools and is now widely known as Ninestiles Teaching School Alliance. Ninestiles has also had a centre for Initial Teacher Training since 2003, which is now South Birmingham SCITT. They have a passion for teaching and support and guide each trainee to their full potential, enabling them to securely enter the teaching profession in just one year.
A new Chief Executive, Catherine Anwar, joined the Trust in May 2017. Before joining the trust, Catherine was a Senior Her Majesty’s Inspector for Ofsted for four years and served eight years as a secondary school headteacher in Hampshire.
