Head of Campus

Welcome to Greenhill Alternative Learning Campus website. Our inclusion centre based in Halesowen is a Leasowes High School initiative, providing alternative curriculum pathways to young people in KS3 and KS4.

Our centre is a hive of activity, blending GCSE courses with vocational qualifications and personal development opportunities. This educational mix, supported by dedicated and compassionate staff has led to positive outcomes for the scores of young people who have accessed our provision over the years.

Our learners are encouraged to strive to achieve results that will allow them to progress to post 16 education or an apprenticeship. Through community service activities, The Duke of Edinburgh Award and extracurricular visits our team endeavour to instil a sense of maturity, responsibility and resiliency in all participants; all key qualities required in an ever changing world.

Schools are welcome to enquire regarding availability for a commissioned placement at our centre. We welcome students on a full time, blended and respite basis; please get in touch to see how we can collaborate to assist your learners to flourish.
