A big welcome to our school!

Tenacres First school is situated on the eastern boundary of Redditch, about 4 km from the town centre and was built in 1975.

It stands on a split-level site and has the advantage of spacious grounds including a large sports field and three playgrounds.

The classrooms are arranged around an inner courtyard, developed as an attractive garden/wild life area. Parts of the grounds are tended by the school’s own Eco Club.

The school caters for children aged 4 to 9 years (Reception to Year 4) and serves the mixed residential areas of Winyates East and Winyates Green.

Also read our Tenacres Recipe for Success created by the children and staff of Tenacres in September 2023.

The Pre-School is run independently from the school and is one of our feeder pre-schools in to our Reception (EYFS) year group.
