Schools Direct

Wyre Forest School (WFS) opened in September 2011 following the closure of two Kidderminster special schools; Blakebrook and Stourminster.

Schools Direct

We are a partner with Birmingham University and Chadsgrove Teaching School (Lead School) for the Schools Direct route into teaching. It is recognised as a programme of National Excellence.

We work with Chadsgrove and the University and play a key role in recruiting and selecting trainees and work with the University to provide a high quality training programme which leads to the award of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with qualified teacher status. We have been involved in training teachers since 2014 and will continue every year.
