School Description

Hydesville Tower School is a leading independent school in Walsall, educating girls and boys aged 3-16. Located in Walsall, with excellent transport links to nearby Birmingham and Wolverhampton, Hydesville Tower School is proud to have been providing academic success to pupils living throughout the Midlands and beyond, since 1952. A hallmark of Hydesville is classes that are typically half the size of other schools. GCSE subjects are often taught to just a handful of pupils. The school values good manners and high standards of behaviour. They promote the importance of community and value the varied contributions our pupils’ families make to school life.

Hydesville Tower School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating

“A smooth transition to a new environment for my Son”

My son has recently joined the school and has found the SENCO and his LSA to be amazing. They have reassured not only my son but also myself in the whole transition process. My son has become a totally different child in this new environment, making me aware that it is the right one for him.
“Fantastic after School activities”

The after-school activities are helpful, especially the maths clinics, as it has really helped my daughter. Also, the sports activities like Netball are a good idea as they keep the kids active.
“A Wonderful School”

Hydesville integrates individual academic attainment with a caring nurturing environment. They have good academic outcomes and very friendly, approachable staff.
“A wonderful Nursery setting”

I am very pleased with the progress my child has made in the short time she has attended the nursery. She really enjoys attending the nursery and has a great relationship with the amazing staff.
“Exceeds expectations”

Mrs Smith in Nursery is amazing. My son is so happy and excited to meet her at nursery. She seems to know every child inside out, not sure how she does it! Mrs Dowen and her colleagues in Reception have been amazing with my daughter as she continues to grow. The reason we chose Hydesville was for our children to receive quality time and attention, not just a number.
“Highly Recommed”

My son has attended Hydesville since nursery. From being a shy and quiet anxious little boy, he progressed extremely well in his confidence and learning journey. All of which has been a credit to the nursery staff, reception teacher and his current year 1 teachers. For this, I would highly recommend Hydesville Tower School.”
“Real progress”

My son started Hydesville just before his 3rd birthday and he’s come on leaps and bounds. He loves school.
“Great school for small class sizes”

Hydesville is a great school for small class sizes, therefore teachers know the individual strengths and weaknesses of each child and how to support their learning. My child is taken care of, my opinion and input matters to them, and I think school provides a good bridge between home and school. The updates provided via the app on what's been done that day makes me feel involved and gives me an idea of how school life is for my daughter.
“Grade A for Hydesville”

Both our Son and Daughter have been through the Hydesville experience from reception to year 6. Our Son is currently still there in year 6. They have both benefited from their time at this wonderful school which has a strong emphasis on family values and good behaviour. The Leadership team is very good and there is such a happy vibe as soon as you arrive. We would be happy to recommend Hydesville to any parents who are looking to give their child or children a grade A start to school life.
“Hydesville Tower school walsall”

My son is in year 4 and he is absolutely loving it at Hydesville Tower. All his teachers and everyone at school do their best to help your child to achieve his or her best. We have a small community room at Hydesville where the staff hold meetings with coffee mornings to find out if parents have any concerns and we are constantly given feedback on any changes or on new polices. The parents and their children are first priority at Hydesville and the service this school provides is excellent. Your child is treated with respect and given all the encouragement a person needs to prosper as an individual.

"New experiences enrich children’s lives and help them decide where their interests and passions lie."

For one lesson a week the timetable is collapsed and given over to pupil enrichment. The programme draws on the interests and talents of our teachers and is a chance for pupils to enjoy pastimes that are beyond the confines of the examination curriculum. The activities are carefully planned to ensure there is something to appeal to all pupils.

At Hydesville Tower School we are committed to inspiring our pupils every day, while ensuring our teachers are equipped with the very best learning tools and resources. To that end, we are delighted to have introduced CENTURY, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered learning platform, to our classrooms.

From April last year, pupils at 16 schools in the Cognita family have benefited from learning using CENTURY during lockdowns and further disruption caused by the global pandemic. Following this successful introduction, Cognita is now bringing the software to even more of its schools across Europe and Hydesville is delighted to be one of them.

Using the latest in AI, neuroscience and learning science, CENTURY personalises learning for every pupil – tailoring its library of teacher-created learning materials to their individual strengths, improvement areas and behaviours.

CENTURY also saves our teachers hours of administrative work every week, freeing them up to focus on teaching, and enabling them the possibility of creating different learning opportunities for students, depending on what the student is experiencing at that moment in time. The platform is becoming increasingly widespread in the core subjects across Hydesville, both in Prep and Senior School.  GCSE Maths pupils have been reaping the benefits of CENTURY since the start of this term.
