A spokesperson for the Midland Academies Trust said, “The new name for Hartshill Academy has been revealed at an exciting time as we look towards the development of a brand new school with a modern, efficient campus that is fit for purpose and supports the aspirations of all our pupils.

“The school has been an academy in all but name for the last decade since it joined the Midland Academies Trust, and the time is now right to refresh and update our appearance. A new version of the logo will be rolled out gradually and will extend to our signage and uniform in due course.

“New uniform will be available from September 2022, and we have reassured pupils and their parents that any uniform purchased before this date can still be worn.”
