About Us

Brownmead Primary Academy is part of the Washwood Heath Multi-Academy Trust. We converted to an academy in November 2014, following 12 months of working with Washwood Heath Academy and realising that our vision and ethos was shared. We made the decision, following recommendation from the DfE, to cement the relationship via the Multi Academy Trust route and since we have been joined by Saltley Academy, Tile Cross Academy, Gossey Lane, Topcliffe and The Firs.

Brownmead is a relatively average sized school, located in Shard End, a suburb of Birmingham. The school is on a large site and the original building has had many alterations and extensions.

The school caters for pupils between the ages of 4 and 11 years and serves mainly Shard End and Castle Bromwich.


Welcome to Brownmead school. I am proud to be the Head Teacher of this family orientated school. A school that has seen many changes in the last few years but a school that is working hard to achieve excellence. Being part of the Washwood Heath Multi-Academy Trust has given the school some much needed stability and has created a range of new opportunities for our children and staff to explore. This relationship is the corner stone to any further development at Brownmead.   Our ethos has been built around our Brownmead Values which was written by pupils, staff and governors to provide a framework through which everyone who comes into our school, is able to buy into and succeed. Our mission is to ensure that we have a school community that empowers and inspires all. The hard work from staff and the relationships with our families give us the opportunity to provide a quality education for all children who cross the Brownmead threshold. This popular school is always fully subscribed and that is testament to it’s popularity locally.


My aim as Head Teacher is to create an environment in which we all develop and grow together educationally and emotionally; providing a range of opportunities, to support the teaching and learning for all.


Our doors are always open and the team would be delighted to welcome any further enquiries you may have.


Mr A Winters Head Teacher

Currently we are a family of 7 schools (3 Secondary and 4 Primary). ‘We are stronger working together in partnership’ is the underlying principle and moral purpose of the WHMAT. We are a family of schools serving a discrete community within this great city of Birmingham. The schools are fully inclusive and serve a very rich and diverse community of cultures and faiths. Each of the schools is unique in its own identity but the strong links between the schools has enabled high quality collaboration to ensure the continued successes of everyone in the partnership.
